I've got a website I've been working on for a while. I started making some cool upgrades using Ajax. Unfortunately, several of my mobile users can't use Ajax (not supported on their device), so I am considering making an area for mobile users.

Besides Ajax, what other types of things should I be aware of?

Thanks.

Also Cameron Moll released a fantastic book on mobile web dev, which might be worth picking up ($19 as an ebook) depending on how often you need to develop for the web.

This is helpful, thanks, but it focuses mainly on the iPhone.

Yeah you're right I pasted the wrong bookmark, sorry. :P Those are still nice for iPhone dev though.

http://www.cameronmoll.com/archives/000398.html is a good resource. Part Three in particular has some pretty interesting listings of browser support for certain tags which would probably be helpful to what you're trying to do.
