    The last few years, I've been coding HTML stuff with simple editors such as Programers File Editor and Bluefish.
    But I'm getting tired of trying to keep up, particularly now that 50% of webviews are done using mobile phones- I am too lazy to add a mobile section to my CSS.

    Does anyone here know of templates or CSS editors that will easily add /convert existing CSS for mobile phones?
    And does HTML-Kit have any "whole page" templates that I can DL and modify for use in setting up new webpages? Of course with CSS that is also mobile-friendly as well as screen{} and printer{} ...

      Hi,

      I haven't really found a drop-in CSS-only replacement that makes
      fixed-size pages mobile friendly. That could certainly work in some
      cases but I've had to redesign page layout to make them responsive.

      There are many many (and more coming) frameworks out there to help with
      mobile-first and responsive design. I don't know if it'd make sense for
      HTML-Kit to pick one. For my purposes though, Bootstrap has worked well:

      HTML-Kit Tools does give you "tools" to test for different sizes and
      live-preview in multiple devices:

      The new Change Log uses Bootstrap (with customizations) and you can see
      if this is the sort of framework you're wanting by resizing the browser
      window:
