I've been using Screenfly, Responsinator and Responsice Design Checker sites. I'm not sure if the problem is with the checkers or something on my part. There are two pages inside separate directories with a link to the css file ../css.file. For whatever reason when I view it through these sites, the css doesn't get executed for the mobile version. All code is self contained in the one file.

Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks!

Use Google Chrome, Opera or Firefox. They each have a mobile emulator baked in.
For Chrome - right click on your page, select "inspect elements" then press ctrl+shift+M. You can select various devices with a wide variety of screen sizes.

If you still have issues, report back.

Are these separate files for desktop and mobile, within separate directories for desktop and mobile? If so, you may need to copy the .css file to each directory for testing rather than linking to a file at root, depending on how the various viewers load the page(s). Do both versions use the same .css file? I ask in case of a caching issue.

I agree with NickMNS about the built in browser tools though current versions of FF aren't as useful as older versions for that purpose.

Yes, all versions use the same css file.

Shouldn't be a cache issue. This was the first time the browser has looked there in months. I'll try putting it locally in the directory.
