[pmwiki-users] Viewing Wiki on BlackBerry or iPhone

The Firefox extension Web Developer has a quick way to resize the 
screen, and it also has "display CSS by media type -- handheld / print".

I don't know if there are any other things that need to be considered, 
other than nix the Java and probably JavaScript.

I still use a handheld with a 180x180 screen, from 2001, but I suspect 
the ones that actually connect to the web would be newer and larger. My 
phone claims to browse the web and has an even smaller screen, but I 
haven't successfully browsed anywhere with it.
