<!-- FLUID GRID -->

<ul id="Grid">
  <li></li>
  <li></li>
  <li></li>
  <li></li>
  <li></li>
  <li class="placeholder"></li>

<!-- LEGEND -->

<p>Resize the grid to see how the elements reflow based on the new column-widths defined in the media queries.<br/>
  <strong>There is no need to ever define horizontal margins/floats/or clear-fixes.</strong></p>

<label>Break element*</label>
  
<p><em>*These elements are visible only for demonstration purposes and should be hidden in production by removing the borders.</em></p>
