XHTML & CSS For Mobile Development

If you follow me on Twitter or on Facebook, you’ve probably heard me talk about the mobile site I’ve been developing for Amazon Audible. The mobile site consists of over 50 mockups that needed to be developed in HTML/CSS and made to work for the iPhone, Android and Blackberry. While coding simple HTML/CSS mockups sounded pretty easy, I found that...
