Responsive design not only challenge our tools and approaches to web design and development, but also forces us to review our ways of planning and managing content. New workflows require the right tools. Upon first thought, this opens an opportunity for completely new content management systems (CMS) and publishing platforms (and we’ll probably see plenty of them in the near future). But anyone who has ever migrated from one CMS to another knows very well that the process is not painless.

It’s great that media queries allow us to adapt the layout of our sites to the users’ viewport size, a.k.a. Responsive Web Design. However, some argue that doing so comes with a (slight) risk of confusing some people that don’t expect viewport width to make the layout change as drastically as media queries allow.
