A few months ago I was involved in a discussion on the CSS Tricks forum, where a fellow developer had built some non-responsive website applications.
The required minimum layout width was 960px, expanding wider when more space was available, but the min-width had caused issues on iPad where the initial view was zoomed in on its 768 x 1024px screen.
I don't have access to the actual problem site, but I recreated the issue on an old non-responsive site of mine that displays

Want a simple, responsive cross-fading slideshow, with images that are lightweight AND retina-ready? You got it!

The common factor in all previous versions of the modal gallery is that alternative markup is offered for IE7/8 users to allow them to view image enlargements in a new browser window instead of the modal overlay.
