What's happened to the CSS "@media handheld" or the media handheld in
the link declaration? Are these used?

This exchange brought to Mind a visual image on using smaller devices,
really on *any* device large or small where this occurs as it has
occurred on 17" screens: The more scrollbar paging all over the place
because the design is [static] rather than, argh, sorry, (technical)
words eluding me much today.. When a webpage doesn't automatically
resize with a device's screen, the more inaccessible a webpage
possibly *would become* for someone with a disability related to
dexterity..
