The short answer is NO.

The web browser on iOS - Safari or Chrome on Android or other browsers do not have the ability to "lock" the orientation as they are designed to work in either orientation.

You can detect the orientation of many mobile devices and put rules in the CSS to modify the layout (and even display a layer telling someone to hold their device in landscape mode.

body[orient="landscape"] or body[orient="portrait"] can be used in your CSS
