Client has a photo of 3 awards on home page.  He wants that image to also display on mobile site.  Problem is, that image is so wide, that it doesn't downsize nicely for mobile site.  Right now, I have the image set to display:none on the mobile css.  Is there a way to actually have it display but simply display much smaller?

Two options.  You can use CSS to set the width in pixels.  Do not specify a height and the browser will calculate the value need to retain the aspect ration.  You cannot use percentage; it must be in pixel to work correctly.

The other option is to set it as the background of an element which will allow percentage dimensions; but that can cause distortion.

You could create a second, smaller version of the image, and load that one for mobile browsers.

Cobol,

I modified small css file to .img_award {width:150px;}
I put this class on award image.  I cannot see the image.

You have an obsolete width attribute specified directly on the image tag. that negates the CSS and makes it impossible for any kind of responsive behavior.

The img tag in the markup has width specified:

<p><img src="img/awards.jpg" alt="" width="400" class="img_award" /></p>

Ah, OK.  I removed that and now image displays pretty good on mobile portrait but still too big for landscape.  : (
