   The mobile web is not just changing how people consume content but how businesses create and format that content.

As it becomes increasingly important to provide the best possible mobile experience (whether through mobile apps, mobile ads or of course mobile sites), Google just added automatic mobile rendering in Google Sites for iOS 3.0+ and Android 2.2 devices and a mobile version of the Google Sites lists. Based purely on the screenshots provided by Google, it’s a vast improvement over the existing structure.

The adjustments that Google made include aligning the header layout and top bar, matching the site width to mobile device screen width, and better handling for sidebars, navigation and dropdown links. Users also have the option to hide specific links include sign-in links, print-page links and recent changes links.

Users of Google Sites can activate the feature under their General setting, by navigating to More Actions > Manage Site and selecting Automatically adjust site for mobile phones.

Just reading this article made me change my style sheet. All my table widths are now percentages rather than pixels.
