I've been thinking a lot about this ever since I got my Blackberry 8700c.

I agree that we need a CSS Blackberry Bush for trying out various
designs for handhelds/phones. hAtom is a great place to start, but we
should also spell out the needs of handheld devices and how to best
design for them, no?

For example, how good is CSS support in browsers? Do we have resources
listing incompatibilities, bugs, etc that we need be aware of like we
do for all the flavors of desktop-based client browsers?

Anyway, I'd like to see some work on this happen -- perhaps in
conjunction w/ CSS-Discuss?
