Tips and techniques for mobile web design

Mobile Web Design: Tips & Techniques is the third part in the Mobile Web Design article series by Cameron Moll and Brian Fling. This part covers two different approaches to designing websites for mobile devices: handheld stylesheets and mobile-specific sites.

I'll start looking closer at these two approaches as soon as I can lay my hands on at least a couple of web enabled cell phones for testing. In the meantime I have found that sending raw HTML without styling, described in Mobile Web Design: Methods to the Madness, works really well for most sites I have built.

Mobile web design is something all web professionals will need to learn more about in the near future. Right now, even - mobile web browsing is quickly becoming more common, at least in countries like Sweden where mobile phones are used by everybody.
