We've talked about jQuery, but what about jQuery Mobile? In this lesson, you'll use it as you create app-like mobile Web pages. You'll also integrate them into a site, and we'll discuss how to build sites that work well in any environment.

It's time to give your mobile site some style. ThemeRoller for jQuery Mobile generates custom CSS for jQuery Mobile sites. With ThemeRoller, you can define global styling elements like fonts and color swatches that you can apply throughout a mobile site.
