Designing a web page that is optimized for the iPhone isn’t rocket science. It’s the same HTML, CSS and JavaScript that you already know. The difference is that browsers and screens do not vary, you know exactly what you are dealing with. You can use that to your advantage and think about that experience when you create your UI. I start out with how to get your page formatted correctly, how to have differnet stylesheets for portrait and horizontal mode, how to create a “Back to Top” button, and then show some iPhone pages I’ve made.
