I'm about to begin creating a mobile version of our company's website, and I have some questions. I've spent many hours reading and researching online, but I can't find some of the answer I need.
1. How can I test a mobile website locally? Are there emulators I can download? Can I plug a phone into my PC and test from the device? I'd like to see how the website looks on the device locally so I can make changes accordingly.
2. With the different screens and resolutions on mobile devices, what is the best width to use for the page layout? Is there a set width of pixels that is a standard to follow, or should it be set at 100%?
3. What is the best way to handle mobile browser detection? So far I've found that I should add code to the Page_Load event of the Master page of our website that checks Request.Browser.IsMobileDevice and redirects to the mobile site if this returns true. Is this the best way?
These are my biggest issues with getting started. Any help is greatly appreciated.
