mobile css

“Which is better? A mobile stylesheet for phones, PDAs and smartphones that restyles the XHTML for mobile viewing ? or ? a separate mobile version of a site that only displays the bare minimum XHTML without the need for CSS.” – (via Benjamin Adam)

  • Interesting post and discussion going on over there. He lays out the pro’s and con’s nicely. The big con he mentions and which is the most important one for me is that using a mobile CSS stylesheet still requires the phone to download the entire site. That’s simply too much to ask a mobile user to do given the limitations of the technology today. I’d rather have no mobile interface than one that infuriates people.
