    As many of you know, I've been working on a redesign of my portfolio.
    Thing is, there's something weird going on when I load it on my iPhone. When the page loads, all of the text is out of place. Just looking at it, it appears that the text size is bigger. The paragraph text overruns it's container.
    However, if I rotate the device, the text re-renders looking just fine. It doesn't seem to matter what the initial orientation is. I don't know if it's happening on other devices.

    Anyway, have a look: http://roedesigns.com/clients/ron

    Yeah, mobile devices add an entirely new element to web design, don't they! I tackle them a couple different ways. Sometimes I'll create a new Virtual Host, basically another website, specifically fashioned for a mobile device.

    Or, if it's not too much trouble, CSS can do a lot to help out. Try using min-width, max-width, min-height, max-height. Also try not using PX or PT for sizes, rather EM.

    Em is not necessarily easier - it's jut better for mobiles since the screen resolutions vary so much. What looks great at 10px in one will be tiny or huge in another.

    I don't recall ever using the word "easy". You also have tools such as utilizing, %'s and floating div's to allow collapsible elements. I've seen a lot of really nice examples of this done, but it takes work. I wrote a blog post about the transformation of SDK to Mobile Browser wars if you are interested.

    [COLOR=rgb(20, 20, 20)]phillihp - Please wait until you have 25 posts before you start putting links into them. We have this rule to try to weed out the spammers, and while your posts are anything but spam, the rules still have to apply, so I've had to remove the link from your post. Sorry.

    I'm using pt right now. I'll give em a shot to see if it helps. I almost always use pt, odd that I never had this issue before...
