Just go here: http://jquerymobile.com/demos/1.1.0/
and check out the intro and the quick start guide. It'll probably take you less than an hour to get comfortable with it. The documentation is very good.
There's a pretty standard format for how pages are structured, and with a basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, etc., it's very easy to pick up.
Thanks, I poked around the site, and as you said it looks pretty straightforward.
I don't actually own a mobile device. I'm guessing if I want to code for mobile I'll need to purchase one for both testing, and also just to familiarize myself with how apps for mobile are designed in general. Do people do all their coding and testing for mobile using "normal" IDE's like Eclipse and testing with browsers? Or are there mobile specific IDE's out there? I ask because it seems a little weird thinking about coding for a dinky little screen but using a browser on a big monitor for all the testing.
My first real decision here is between doing the site for mobile devices, or just sticking with a traditional web app for now.
