I think there are interesting ways we can extend FSS and UI Enhancer  
to fulfill this role. Jacob has already built some support for a  
simplified layout which we could conceivably break down into smaller  
bits - say a screen per section and may render reasonably well on a  
mobile device. Clearly we will need to build in more semantic  
information on the page as Clayton mentioned above. An automated  
solution could help to reduce the resource requirement on a museum.  
Although this may not result in the perfect mobile experience, we  
would build the solution to be pluggable (as is the Fluid way) so that  
when resources exist to improve on the automated solution that could  
be done.
