getButterfly Logo getButterfly code wrangling since 2005

I am working on updating my smartphone and modifying some blogs’ themes to be mobile compatible. This is a request from a few clients. If I succeed, I will also turn several of my blogs into mobile compatible blogs.

Mobile compatibility for WordPress blogs can be achieved by plugins or manually. I, personally, don’t like the plugin way and I like to modify themes by manually coding. This can be achieved by a correct XHTML page structure, liquid layout, no hardcoded min- or max-width, correct floating, no JavaScript, no Flash and as few images as possible.

With the advent of HTML5, correct page structures will be easier to code. CSS3 will improve the page and will gracefully degrade if the mobile browser cannot support it.
