Converting a JS client from $OS6 (static page) to $OS8 (responsive page)
I use the single page layout with resize mode full to create forms that cover both tablets ans desktop use.
All forms are designed primarly at Ipad’s size 1024 x 768.
ensure the form fits to browser’s window size but don’t stretch below their design size.
With these choices,I don’t support smaller sizes (ie smartphones) and I make sure my clients are well aware of that.
Although these “fixed size” forms display rather decently on smartphones, they are clearly unusable for data entry.

> So before I make the final decision on how to proceed with this, I thought to check with the list and hopefully I can get some feedback from others about their experience with the conversion process.
