Yes, you're right. This workaround would not be the most generic one.  
Opera 7 (currently sold mostly in Asia) does reflow, but the other phone  
browsers (including Opera 6) do not. Purely embedded style sheets should  
work for latency-critical applications for these browsers too, but that  
has other obvious drawbacks.
