So has the css been shared for the mobile website someplace?  I don't want to recreate any more wheels!

I've also looked at modifying existing code to create a mobile Koha, but what I have done requires manual updates to templates etc..  Plus it was done PRE-Template Toolkit...  So now I need to clean it up for submission under the 3.6 using TT.

We did it.
You can test it here :


using css only is quite interesting because : 
 - easy to maintain
 - all the OPAC features
less smoothly integrated in the mobile phone.
requires internet connection.
