I'm running into a problem. If you have an image named image.png that is 320x240 for the older iPhone models and you create a higher resolution of the same image and title it image@2x.png the safari browser on the iPhone 4 is supposed to display the higher resolution one.

I've been running a test at [lee.andron.com...] and the larger image is not picked up on the iPhone 4 for me.

Anyone heard of this or know why it may not be working?

I could be wrong, but I thought the @2x solution only applied to native iPhone apps, not to the Safari browser.
