You'll have to forgive my ignorance when it comes to mobile
application support, but could I ask a few questions?

non-IE browser - which browser or rather Mobile platform is your
application for?

when it comes to mobile phones - are you developing for only one
particular mobile device - such as an iPhone....

Can you explain why you have to rotate the contents - I would have
thought that layout is generally done by widths - which can
accommodate different sizes.

When you say Application - is this something that is installed on the
device or a website?
