    ADOBE - Why is the meta "viewport" tag missing from the jQuery Mobile Web starter pages?

    jl2000 Level 1

      Hi -

      I'm just starting to play with mobile and responsive web design.  I worked out a mobile version of an existing site which looked good locally but when I uploaded it the site appeared miniaturized and not optimized for small viewports.  All the text, images, buttons, etc - were tiny on the iPhone screen when the site was supposed to adapt to the small screen.  It took me a few hours of hair pulling to find out that the most important tag of all was missing:

      <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />

       

      Why on earth would Adobe tout that their web dev application has features to springboard mobile design if the starter pages don't even include the fundamental tag that makes a site viewable on mobile screens ??

       

      Is my version of Dreamweaver missing something?  Version 12/build 5861, Mac OS X 10.7.5 ?  Or has someone at Adobe forgot to test this product?  Or am I just crazy (besides being mad as hell)?

       

      thanks,

      Josh
