Thanks for the response Cecille.
I tested all my Blog edits on my Android Samsung Galaxy SII's browser as I went. They were all necessary for viewing on it. This is with the latest WordPress + StudioPress Genesis framework and StudioPress Eleven40 child theme for regular browsers or mobile. These commercial products are recognized as top quality and especially good for SEO (with the best SEO plugin from Joost de Valk).
However, I did do a lot of customizing on the theme so some of that accounts for changes I had to make for mobile.
Have not had time yet to run the site's newest HTML and CSS through my 2 code validator programs (BTW, I recommend the CSE HTML validator and the TopStyle CSS validator) - that might turn up some more stuff to debug.
For many sites, the options on a smart phone (for sites not modified for mobile) are:
1. Seeing the whole page, but too small to read.
2. Seeing an enlarged version of the page and having to swipe your finger across to scroll each and every line of text - but sometimes scrolling also breaks and the right side of the page remains invisible.
So a mobile ready site seems like a requirement, either now or soon. I'd recommend that all marketers check the specs on any themes to be used and see that they are mobile ready - this is sometimes called "Responsive Design" in the theme features lists.
