I then tried to read this article on my mobile phone during the bus trip home, but the same poor display of the graphs occurs on Opera Mobile 10.00 on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. I gave up again. When I got home I tried again with Firefox 9.0.1 on Ubuntu 10.04 and the graphs looked much better. I then tried using Firefox's zoom in feature and the graphs still looked just as good.

Can something be done about this in the future?
Screenshots? It's probably serving the PNG version of the graphs under IE8... (I forgot if it was IE8 or IE9 where SVG is properly supported). Under desktop Opera there is at least one SVG bug in their browser but haven't specifically seen if its addressed in the mobile version or not, so there I have it blacklisted too for doing PNG. Firefox always works beautifully with SVG. In terms of text-sizes my new SVG/PNG renderer might address that but not sure without seeing the IE screenshots.
