How can I prevent a page from resizing when accessed by a mobile device?

Head out to http://www.countryshowdown.com/sir.php. If you click on the Internet Radio graphic, you'll get the player in a pop up window that's been resized.

I want to include in the header of that page some code that would prevent a browser from attempting to resize that page and reduce it to a tiny little thumbnail in the upper left hand corner of one's mobile device.

How do I do that?

To expand on the answer given by  COBOLdinosaur, it is MY device I will tell YOU how it is going to display. Any arguments to the contrary and I will take my browsing elsewhere. Keep your nasty Microsoft habits to yourself.

Yet another "I'm going to control the user" question.  You can screw around with scripting to disrupt user controls, but in the end for most users; if they don't have control they will just close it or the popup will just be blocked because users have just about zero tolerance for this kind of nonsense.

My answer to you would be to open the player in a shadowbox

+1 for the answers from COBOLdinosaur and MunterMan.  Don't even think in these terms.  Instead go with the idea of "what does the client want?"

I guess I didn't ask the question correctly. I was able to accomplish what needed to be done as far as routing my user to a mobile friendly dynamic with another site and I'll just use that approach.

Basically, I'm routing my mobile device user to a different directory where my stylesheet is making the necessary adjustments so they're not looking at links that appear microscopic. The site that I'm referring to is http://brucegust.com/lavergnesmiles/. It will render differently on a smart phone than it will on a desktop based on a php script that's situated in the header.

Apparently it's a very common and effective practice and given the passion that accompanied the responses to this question, I apologize if I framed it incorrectly.

Thanks!
