Excess material helps me keep track of the full conversation so I will be
leaving it in.
Why? In one of the other messages someone stated something similar to
That mobile phones, ignore the style sheet media type as a link and just use
the "all" type of media
so now why use the @ media? In the future mobile phones (should/will)
and from what I understand the @media rule is the proper way to import a
style sheet according to the W3C
That way as new devices come out they will be able to use the style sheet as
they were designed to.
As I see it, you would have to design a second version of the website as it
is because you cannot
achieve the same results because if the mobile phones use the "all" media
type, that is going to mess with your
browser lay out, so you would need a sub domain/directory(eg
http://mobile.abyss.ws/ - fake link) for the second version that would be
completely for mobile devices - at least until more devices supported CSS
I hope that makes sense....
