aloha, kynn!

you observed: quote and if you need cell phone support, you could just create a
new section of the Intranet to support _that_. unquote

to which i find myself bound to reply that i just hope that it is more
conscientiously updated than the text-only versions of sites that people
somehow think are easier to maintain in (uneven) parallel to the quote full
blown graphical unquote version of a site than to take the initial time to
ensure the interoperability of the site in the first place...

stripping down a site doesn't necessarily make it more accessible, just as
valid HTML doesn't necessarily mean accessible HTML...

the solution is to design for structured delivery of _all_ content, period... 
when you do that, you can communicate effectively and easily with whatever user
agent comes down the pike...
