I really want to use the 1140px framework to make a responsive theme. I have used grid systems before to make themes, but I'm new to using the 1140px theme for responsive themes. Here is an example of a responsive theme made on this framework http://demo.studiopress.com/eleven40/ I know it is on the genesis framework but I'm familiar enough with working with both WordPress theming and the Genesis Framework to know that at least the responsive aspects will be almost identical to each other.
Here is what confuses me: how do you handle responsiveness with this? I mean I know you cannot alter the html by media queries, just the style, so if you have a sidebar how can you change it from lets say .4col floated left, to a 12col floated none (below content). It just is oddly confusing to me.
If anyone has suggestions that can help me with coding responsive themes in general that would be great. I want to offer my clients responsive websites as a standard operating procedure and I just want to have a solid base that I can build off of. I know no two projects are the same, I just usually like to start off with a good code base.
Thanks for everyone's help
