The browser is essentially firefox (possibly Opera...) - I mentioned
non-IE because I don't want to use proprietary IE "filters" to rotate
the content.

The browser support to pretty much the same as Firefox, it supports
javascript and CSS2.

I am a contractor on this job, and was simply told that it had to be
rotated.  In my own eyes, I agree with you, but that's not what the
client wants :)

And to answer your final question, it is going to be a "website"
fundamentally, but the handheld will be set on this one website, and you
will be unable to navigate away. (the devices sole purpose is to be on
this website)

I hope that helps,

 - Jon
