Before you delve in too deeply: Does the iPad behave differently from vanilla Safari? Make sure you're addressing the right problem before you start tearing your hair out. When I rotate my iPad, the whole page simply gets wider physically.
Incidentally, I never go anywhere either, but my father sort-of insisted on giving me an iPad. I take it to bed with me so if I need to look up a word in the middle of the night,* it's right there.
* Doesn't everyone lie awake nights trying to remember the inuktitut for "remember" when you're certain you looked it up just a few days ago?
