This might be the wrong place to ask but...

I want to convert the following template to HTML and CSS. Should I use a grid system such as bootstrap or skeleton? Seeing as it's already a grid it seems to make sense.

I get the feeling that bootstrap would be overkill if I'm only using the grid system. I would like it to be responsive but also work across a good range of browsers.

  • Personally, I would use Bootstrap JS. I actually paid for a framework wrapbootstrap.com/theme/… Since buying it, I have seen extremely similar versions for free, so probably the one I bought was based on a free one. Google around for one (or pay $18). It supports the Bootstrap grid system

Using a grid system will be very helpful for such a template and will allow you to go faster for implementing the responsiveness. There is no need for reinventing the wheel.

You could use alternative CSS frameworks like Pure.css which is pretty light and well designed. There is also a possibility to use only the grid (under the customize tab).

Otherwise there is a list of CSS framework on Wikipedia where you will surely find one that fits your expectations.
