Fixed vs. Fluid Layout


A Fixed or a Design Driven layout is a web page layout where page elements will stay in location regardless to the size of browser window. Use pixels for <div> and table dimensions and font sizes to create a fixed design driven web page.


Fluid or Responsive is a web page layout where elements move around by resizing the browser to accommodate text. Use percentage dimensions for tables, <div> tags and font sizes to create web pages with liquid layout. This type of design fits nicely in all screen sizes including mobiles, pads and large screens.
