Responsive Web Design (RWD) is a web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience - easy reading and navigation with a minimum of re-sizing, panning, and scrolling - across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).

There are only about 10 fonts that you can virtually guarantee - don't worry, we can send you a list to choose from!
