Common Media Queries
/* This is a small sampling of the various approaches to media queries. The
point is: they're all over the board. Part of the "issue" (if you can call
it that) may be due to the intended audience of each site/framework. Another
may be that it's really difficult to test for a lot of different devices.
Regardless, it would be really nice if there was standard baseline that
could be used as a starting point for maximum compatibility and coverage. */
