    Default Physical size of page elements, especially navigation buttons

    Hello,

    Sizes of elements are important, esp. if they are the target of finger tabs. The pixel density of the device and the pixel dimensions of an element determine how large the element appears on the device.

    I'm new to setting up mobile websites. Is there any way to ensure an element displays at a certain physical size (or within a certain range)?

    How do people approach this issue usually?

    I imagine that the site would need to query what pixel density and then the coding respond to this?

    Many thanks.

    If you're that worried about pixel perfection you should be using Device Atlas, WURFL or something else that knows the handsets rather well so you can tailor the page to the device.

    Thanks for you answer Andy!

    (Although I'm not so worried about pixel perfection, just about physical size

    It sounds as if this was the way to approach this...

    Unless anyone has got another take on this?

    There's always the option to not care so much, it costs nothing and everyone has the technical ability to hope for the best!
