    My suggestions:

    Add this in to your meta tags. Will force the width.

    Code:
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1">
    Use divs rather than tables.

    Put the numbers on buttons and larger buttons.

    Style the text down the bottom.

    as always johno69 great advice

    maybe johno69's code suggestion may fix the htc droid issue.

    i'll update the thread when i update the page

    PS: i tried to create it in studiopress "balance" theme which is suppose to be "responsive design" but it just didn't cut it, the header went West, the fact i have no nav didn't stop it from still making the space for it but after that it was ok, so i eventually just went back to html and scrapped studiopress.

    For such a simple site I think Wordpress is overkill. Just a 1 page html file would be enough there.

    You can even just view the page source and paste that into a html file and there you have your new site.

    Use the K.I.S.S. method when you can I say.
