    I think your report was secretly a excellent kick off to a prospective series of publish ups on this topic. A lot of users work like they know what they are writing about with regards to this subject and seriously, nearly no one actually get it. You appear to understand it nevertheless, so I think you ought to run with it. Thanks!

    Oh! I understand. You want a « just for small screen iPhone/smartphone » template for the web site (I was thinking about something else – which is not public yet, by the way).

    So, I just tried a template for small screens of portable devices. Anybody trying it (Seb?) is invited to tell about it now.
