request support for mobile browser detection

Is there a way to initiate browser detection for mobile phone access? I'd like to be able to switch part of my site to a different style sheet that simplifies layout for mobile access.

Judi,

There's many ways to do this, and it's independent of Webvanta -- it depends on existing html, css, and js features.

The easiest is just to provide a mobile stylesheet:

You can also get into using JS to to detect browser type or screen size:

Which is especially useful if you want to choose not to render certain images or choose content in a different way.
