Can I use CSS Sculptor to redirect mobile devices since I have flash?

I don't even know if this is the appropriate place to post this.

I have flash on each page... I'd like to have a CSS redirect or whatever it does to offer an alternative.


Suggestions?

You would use JavaScript to detect the browser/mobile platform and redirect accordingly.

Isn't there a JS alternative? I heard there is a CSS alternative, but I don't understand how that would fix the issue. Does it redirect to a new page or does the CSS block the flash and replace it with something else?

CSS can't redirect the page, but you could make stylesheets that works only for mobile. Then in that CSS you could just hide the area containing the flash. You need to do JavaScript to redirect the page.

I've never targeted a mobile device myself, but you can probably just use the 'handheld' media type when including your CSS. Check out this page: css_mediatypes.asp
