Hello all—

I'm working on implementing a couple different sites from scratch, and I want to do them both responsively, with a grid system. Given that the current responsive headers & footers are max 960px wide, I can't use the 1140 CSS Grid (cssgrid.net), nor any of the fluid-at-full-size systems that might otherwise be my inclination.

I'm looking at Gumby (gumbyframework.com), which provides both 12-column and 16-column variants. (One of the sites is laid out on a 16-column grid.) Are there others that meet these requirements (960 max width, 16-column, responsive) that I should be looking at? Are there any big downsides to using a framework at all (other than cluttering HTML with non-semantic classes)?
