Based on the question below - I'm guessing that I can employ some code to detect a handheld device and redirect the user to a pared down version of a site.

For now, I would like a very quick solution, like a business card instead of the entire site optimized for the PDA. I'd love to know if there is a way to redirect a handheld device to a text-only page with contact information.

Thanks!

Yes you can write a sniffer script and redirect.. A more elegant solution is to do this through CSS.
