Your on the right track...You can use the screen.availWidth "function" in 
Javascript to assess the size of the screen and if less that 700, drop in 
your gif. You could put the script right were you want the graphic to 
appear and "write" the appropriate code to the browser OR put the script at 
the end of your page and treat the image like a rollover, only instead of a 
click event - just immediately activate the javascript.
