Is there a way in JSP to determine which OS a web page is being run on? We have a web application that will run on a Pocket PC and on a Desktop. Currently, the developers are coding the screen to be in the top left corner so that it will show up right on a Pocket PC. When this website is pulled up on a desktop, it shows up on the top left corner of the screen. Is there a way to determine the OS/IE Version, so that the page can be displayed appropriately?

Thanks

You could do it like the following:

And have a completely different XSL template for different browsers (and their respective screen sizes)

Or else (as this is a lot of work), you could design your page to look ok on many browsers (maybe using CSS)

This talks about that direction:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/HTML/Q_21076535.html
