    Theres so much info on the net its hard to know whats best.. I understand low weight and using the
    and stuff im just trying to work out how to visually format everything, what should i have the width of my content be?
    im seeing through adobes device central thing and i see that pretty much their main page is just listed in a straight list style format. .is this pretty much a good practice, just make everything in a list format like that? have small pictures and such ?


    Check out this article on mobile development. It’s aimed more at not-smart-phones though, but I think you could probably learn something from it.


    Best practice for mobile is to set the content width in % (100% or 95% for example). That way no matter what the screen resolution of the mobile device is the content will adjust to fit it. I do the same for all the elements within it too, eg. Images at 50% width, paragraphs at 100%. You don’t want to use a fixed width really as it may be too wide or not wide enough for certain screen resolutions.


    You might also want to have a look at media-queries, which I would say are the way of the future. I would avoid using an outdated Doctype like that.
