Design HTML newsletter for/detect mobile devices

Are there any guidelines for designing HTML newsletters for mobile devices?
Our company is rolling out more and more of these devices.

Currently, we were going to offer users the option to sign up for a text
version (if they use mostly PDAs to read email) or HTML version if they work
mostly in the office.

I see there is a MailMessage.AlternateViews to show either text or html if
the email client is one or the other. My question is though, if they sign up
for HTML versions, is there a way to detect mobile device/email client to
render a scaled down HTML version or just force the the text version on the
device? But if they're in the office, still allow them to see the full HTML
if they happen to view it in Outlook 2007

2. Distorted Text: HTML Newsletter/Email designed through Publisher


I have been trying to produce a newsletter from scratch using
publisher and trying to send it through 'Send as Email' option.
Everything comes fine when a receipient open this email but the only
issue is with text which gets distorted and wavy, not clear.

Is there anyway I could improve the quality of text or avoid
distortion of text so that newsletter text should not get distorted
once sent as an email. (I suspect this is some kind of issue between
publisher document conversion in to html and sending through Outlook

Many Thanks,
