			<h1>Toggle Navigation</h1>
      <p>From <a href="http://bradfrostweb.com/blog/web/responsive-nav-patterns/">Responsive Navigation Patterns</a>:</p>
			<p>For small screens a &#8220;menu&#8221; button appears that, when clicked, expands an accordion style navigation. When more screen real estate becomes available</p>
			<h3>Pros</h3>
			<ul>
			<li><strong>Keeps the user in place</strong>- Where the footer anchor jumps suddenly, the toggle menu simply appears in place, which doesn&#8217;t disorient the user.</li>
			<li><strong>Elegant</strong>- This is definitely one of the more classy approaches. No awkward forms or page jumps, just a smooth animated flyout or basic show/hide.</li>
			<li><strong>Easy to scale up</strong>- All you need to do is hide the mobile trigger and show the nav list when the appropriate breakpoint is reached and you have yourself a normal large screen nav. All this can be accomplished with CSS.</li>
			</ul>
			<h3>Cons</h3>
			<ul>
			<li><strong>Animation performance</strong>- Your mileage will vary when doing any sort of animation on mobile devices. Android is notoriously bad with CSS animations and so things might not be as smooth as you&#8217;d like. Also, for what it&#8217;s worth I&#8217;ve recently been animating <a href="http://jsfiddle.net/leaverou/zwvNY/">max-height</a> which seems to work well.</li>
			<li><strong>Javascript dependency</strong>- Again this approach relies on a bit of Javascript in order to trigger the toggle, but it&#8217;s minimal. I have one Blackberry test device that refuses to listen to any of this stuff, but most browsers, including proxy browsers like Opera Mini and Dolphin Mini, handle it just fine.</li>
