Thanks Justin,

I hope that I didn't come across as too critical, I was just ignorant of 
the fact that the leading mobile browser all users WebKit specific CSS.  
I have updated my test page so that it also includes Firefox 3.6 Android 
style rendering.  At the moment all the Firefox specific styles are 
stored in one file @:


This file should be stored in the same place that 
fss-mobile-theme-android.css and fss-mobile-theme-iphone.css are located 
in the framework.  The file also augments fss-mobile-layout.css to add 
the rounded corners.  If you prefer I could merge the changes made into 
fss-mobile-layout.css, fss-mobile-theme-android.css and 
fss-mobile-theme-iphone.css respectively.

Best wishes,


PS Sorry about the previous incomplete e-mail.
