A little problem, the iPhone style doesnt render properly on the browser of the ZuneHD. It shows to be completely white.

I know that the ZuneHD uses IE. Most likely a mobile version, but it renders everything else fine. (including other styles)

Might have something to do with iPhones running Apple Safari....

I'm aware of that. However, the theme renders properly on IE8 on the computer. That being said, it needs to be compatible with any mobile device, not just the iPhone.

Well the browsers use a completely different rendering engine and Microsoft's browsers are known for not following web standards. The theme could be coded correctly but ZuneHD browser is not rendering it correctly..

This is why an IE friendly iPhone skin would be nice. Windows Mobile 7 is gonna be on a few smartphones too. If we're gonna cater to apple users, we might as well not leave out IE users.

Can't you install a different browser on the zune?

No you cannot as far as I know. The Zune would kick some serious tail if someone ported firefox to C# but there is no such project in place.

That is indeed the point of this post. To inform the administration that the ZuneHD is not properly supported so that they can hurry up and decide if they will fix the current theme for mobile devices or to create a new one for IE based mobiles.
There needs to be some more themes for mobile devices, since most of the current ones are too bulky, meaning you have to zoom in and out to navigate...which is annoying. I'd use the lo-fi but the sort order is annoying and it doesnt allow posting or profile/blog views

Can't you just use the basic mobile theme?

I can't recall the url of the mobile version of this site (I know it has it).

Sadly the .mobi site does not work on the ZuneHD. I just tested it now. I even had to change my password because it rejected my previous one even though I typed it correctly
