    Hi, I am a beginner at web developing and I'm really confuse on what unit to use to have a responsive page. what unit I need to use to have a responsive text, image, video and image map?
    Do I need to have different unit in images, videos etc.?
    or
    Is it still important to change unit if I already have a viewport ?
    what will happen if my px set is higher than the pixels on smaller devices?
    does the image map can also be responsive?

    IMO yes:(
    Bootstrap is a broadly used Responsive Grid Sytem, which comes complete with its own css and js files and will simplfy your design and development ...

    It may be a little harder BUT it is worth it imho for two reasons.

    1. You learn new skills
    2. Bootstrap has a load of stuff you don't need and can be troublesome to get exactly what you want.
    I never use Bootstrap because of #2 above.

    In all fairness Colin, you are a TSG renowned WordPress user, which has it's own plugins for responsiveness.;) Whereas for "normal" website building, Bootstrap is probably the most popular platform, albeit over-developed (we can choose to use it's 'stuff' as and when required) ...

    @Jim I do still develop websites using HTML and I find it far easier to do responsive with CSS, you don't even need js, than the bloat of Bootstrap.
