That depends on what the code looks like now. You may not even need to adjust any html elements.

If the html is a bunch of tables, you might want to move them into divs (with classes for structuring columns).

The big thing in going from static to responsive is adding media queries to your css. You basically just add a line for the media query (media screen and (max-width:599px) and then add new styling between curly braces.

Check out the Markdown Cheatsheet below the textarea on this page where you enter comments/answers. Look at how to paste in Code.

Hi Susan. It sounds like you need to look into the HTML and CSS tracks here on Treehouse. Converting a site to be responsive is probably more than you want to take on just here in the forum. I joined Treehouse to do exactly what you are talking about. I have a side business that really needed help in the website side of things, and I am extremely happy with what I have been learning here.
