    Simple yet very effective:

    <div id="wrapper">
       <div id="header">
          <h1>Your Site Title</h1>
       </div><!-- end header -->
       <div id="main">
          <div id="content">
             <h2>Your Content Title</h2>
             <p>Your content blah blah...</p>
          </div><!-- end header -->
          <div id="sidebar">
             <p>Your sidebar content...</p>
          </div><!-- end sidebar -->
       </div><!-- end main -->
       <div id="footer">
          <p>Your footer content...</p>
       </div><!-- end footer -->
    </div><!-- end wrapper -->


    #wrapper {
       max-width: 1200px;
       width: 95%;
       margin: 0 auto;
    #header, #main, #footer {
       width: 100%;
    #content {
       width: 65%;
       float: left;
    #sidebar {
       width: 35%;
       float: left;
    #footer {
       clear: both;

    The main thing here is to use the "max-width" and "width" on the wrapper (or whatever did you have wrapping the content).

    I'm using this style of coding on my website:

    Have you found a good reference yet? I'm starting to look around at responsive designs & there is loads of material around for general sites and I suspect most of the principles can be implemented/applied to a WordPress theme.

    Thanks for the link

    Surely you mean HTML5 ?!.....

    Your site doesn't have to use HTML5 tags to be responsive.

    Underscores theme is a good way to start your own theme. But if you want to make your existing theme responsive then you have to make changes to the stylesheet so that the elements responds as per the devide width.
