    If I have an existing Desktop Website in ASP.Net 2.0, how can i have that same website formatted differently for a PocketPc or any mobile device. For example, since i can display some much more content in my desktop site, i want to scale down the site for a mobile device; knowing that my real estate is limited with mobile devices.

    Thanks

    Some browsers for PocketPC provide viewing options that reformat the Web page automatically; often it's broken up into pieces and therefore the design is lost.

    As for scaling down in a way whereby the site is modified in terms of content: most of the mobile versions of PC sites I have used have been purpose built.

    There are some interesting developments:
