These guidelines are provided to assist developers in optimizing Web content for mobile browsers, particularly for Internet Explorer Mobile.
The document is divided into four sections.

– Detecting Mobile Browsers: Whether you are reusing content and adapting existing Web pages or creating new content targeted for the phone browser, the techniques described in this section may be relevant and useful.
– Targeting Mobile Browsers: This approach may involve repurposing or retailoring Web pages, but focuses more on how to create new content specifically for viewing in mobile browsers such as Internet Explorer Mobile.
