Responsive HTML table that works on an IPAD

Some CSS and Javascript that makes a table be responsive doesn't work right on an IPAD or Iphone.

We know this code works.  Just set your table class=responsive.

<table class="responsive">

<!--responsive table code from  -->
only screen and (min-width: 760px)  {

.item {width:350px;}
.uofm {width:70px;}
 .val1 {width:70px;}
.val2  {width:70px;}
 .multTotal {width:70px;}

 table.responsive { 
  width: 100%;
  border-collapse: collapse; 

/* Zebra striping */
.responsive tr:nth-of-type(odd) { 
  background: #eee; 
.responsive th { 
  background: #333; 
  color: white; 
  font-weight: bold; 
.responsive td, th { 
  padding: 6px; 
  border: 1px solid #ccc; 
  text-align: left;
