iPhone Tweaks

Another minor update.

Firstly there are now better 404 and error pages. Previously they were fairly unfriendly server error styles pages. Now they look like they belong to the site. Not a major thing at all, but it's been bugging me since I started chrss two years ago.

The real thing of interest though is that I've added an extra style sheet for iPhone (and in principle Android) users. It simply tweaks the main style sheet to make the site work a bit better on the iPhone's small screen (relative to a desktop/laptop at least). This means that the chess board for a game should be nice and big on the iPhone's screen so you can see what's going on.

The one minor caveat though is that I've only tested this on the iPhone simulator (I'm a bit of a luddite when it comes to phones). However as it's only making small changes it should work ok.

So hopefully for the few people currently using an iPhone to access chrss their user experience will now be a good deal better.

It works very well on my iphone. I used to have to resize the window quite a bit,now the board comes on the screen exactly the right size.

Excellent. I did get to test it quickly on a real iPhone at the weekend and it seemed pretty reasonable.

Let me know if there are any obvious other tweaks that can be done.
