How to webpage compatible for viewing with Blackberry?

Our business has a few who need to access a section of the company website with a blackberry browser.  It is basically a static page which displays an employee schedule.  it's a simple page, created as a word file and 'saved as' a webpage.  Blackberry users are apparently having difficulty viewing this simple calendar page using the Blackberry.  How can the page be modified for proper viewing on a BB?  Does it come at the expense of 'less than optimal' viewing with standard browser?  Also, is there an alternate method to making compatible via BB settings as opposed to changing the page?  

Thanks for any insight!

It might be because of scripts that the blackberrys cannot handle. What types of blackberrys are being used? Also how far do users get/do they get any error messages?

Data is arranged linearly.  Can not view the data as a calendar.  It lists the dates and the calendar events but in a format which is difficult to read.   Maybe I just need to upload some software to the bb to view it??   otherwise are there options where a MS Word formatted calendar can be re-formatted for web-browsing by BB?

Let me have the user try your suggestion prior to attempting to re-format the page...  I will follow up with findings.  Thanks and sorry for the delayed response -

Well, the user has since bought a Palm Centro and did not have any feedback for your suggested fix...

In any case, I believe you provided enough info to determine whether the change would need to be made on the BB device or the web page.  Thanks -

Thanks for our help.  Wish we had a definitive answer without needing to test.  Seems like this would be a fairly common scenario, although I found very little, if any, info on the web about how to resolve...
