I just don't think forcing web pages or documents designed for a larger 
screen into a small screen as anything significant. This type of 
approach is tiresome and a step if not backwards then at least to the 
side. I'm all for options but the user experience will surely suffer as 
flaws in that model become glaringly apparent with meaningful use - we 
have been there before.  Your post provided me the opportunity to 
express MY OPINION. I stand by my comments.

"Reverse luddism" - guess I'll take that as a compliment.
