Angus, thanks for the reply.
We were taking the same approach, tall, skinny and lean, then the client 
hired some hotshots from AT&T to do the mobile version - we are doing the 
traditional version.  Still to run on our servers, though.  The store(s) is 
for one of the major political party conventions in the US this summer and 
should be a good test.  Let me know if you want to be kept posted from time 
to time.
