Make existing website mobile enabled RRS feed

    I haven't really been keeping up on mobile technology lately, particularly with regards to ASP.NET 2.

    What's the best way to take a website that's already live and set it up for compatability with mobile devices? Is it simply a matter of CSS tweaking?

    As I understand it, the correct way of making a mobile web app is to use the Mobile ASP.NET project. I understand that this ensures the correct markup is produced for the calling device.

    However, with xHTML enabled mobiles (often referred to as "WAP 2.0/xHTML" if you look at www.gsmarena.com ) these can display the usual xHTML that is output by a desktop .aspx page (page class). I browsed for google.com on a 3G xHTML device and the google home page renders as it does on a PC browser.

    Try accessing your pages on a 3G device.

    Have a look at this webcast series from MSDN:
