Can someone help me get this content to neatly fill a mobile device? It's shifted a bit to the right and not quite size correctly.

The whole page is about 15 px too far right and needs to be centered. If you zoom out of the page it fits. I would like it to fit without needing to zoom out.

Fix this first:
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pvplayerspizza.com%2Fmobile%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

You almost certainly want to start with HTML that will pass STRICT validation.  Then you can use CSS to style it for the smart phone.

I think I would want to make it pass STRICT instead of Transitional, but that may be beside the point.

The general advice I get when I ask designers about mobile devices is "code in percentages."  Getting rid of the tables might be a good start, then using CSS to style the elements so that they do not take up a specific width.  In other words, wherever you have specific dimensions, remove them (including image tags).  I would be on guard against things like this...

<table border="0" align="center" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="0">
    <tr>
      <td valign="middle" ><div id = "UtilityNav" align="center"><a href="default.asp">Home</a></div></td>
      <td width="123"><div align="center"><a href="tel:5304328040"><img src="images/logo4.png" alt="PV Players Pizza" width="123" height="78" border="0" /></a></div></td>
      <td valign="middle"><div id = "UtilityNav2" align="center"><a href="../default.asp">Full Site</a></div></td>
    </tr>
</table>

It's a lot of work to get good CSS the first time, but the flexibility and results are more than worth the effort.

Thanks for the points.  We have a local developers group here in Washington, DC that focuses on mobile apps. You might want to look for one in your area.  Great intellectual cross-pollination!
