    Cool Designing for mobile phones

    Does anyone know what the process is for an ordinary website builder like myself to design for a mobile user.

    1 Do I have to recognise an incoming user as being on a mobile and divert to a more basic design - info only...

    OR

    2 Do I let a user register on my site for downloads

    I'm running a sports website with international interest...

    So how do I go about this ? Anyone got any ideas?

    Cheers

    Jeremy

    Try to look at the code for some of the pages that you access through your
    mobile, from your PC/Mac.
    Then you will have an idea how to create them.

    Normally you cannot use css, backgroundimage and other styling and the page must preferably, not have a width of more than ,I think, 100px,

    Nokia has a CSS style sheet designed to render for
    "small screen rendering".

    An example can be seen here:
    http://www.catpin.com/ssr

    You'll notice this line in the HTML source:
    type="text/css" media="handheld, screen, projection"

    I have yet to test it on a real cell phone ...
    if someone can try it out, let me know how it looks...thanks.

    I've been bookmarking resources about this as it is something i want to learn. here's some of my links:

    http://www.forum.nokia.com/main.html

    http://www.teleglobe.com/en/services...armode_mobile/

    http://www.deviceanywhere.com/index.jsp

    I managed to build a (lame) webpage that works on my phone - pdamobile.com - its simple, but so's my phone.

    a great looking guy put a post up about having a dedicated mobile forum here - Mobile Media Forum

    Haven't heard from the mods but i think it is worth considering.
