Finally got the header image (logo) to work on my mobile site when phone is held portrait. BUT, when you turn phone to landscape, the ipad logo tries to load which is bigger than the mobile logo.  How do I manage this?  See screen shots from emulator (http://ipadpeek.com/)

You should be able to force it by specifying the orientation in a media query:

handheld and (orientation: landscape)

Should target phones in landscape mode.  So try adding it to the phone media query.

Could you give me a little guidance.  I am not sure how to write that css to target the various orientations. I found this online but am not sure what info I need to put in.  Do I include the "@media" in the css for the mobile css or for all?

@media all and (orientation:portrait) {
/* Style adjustments for portrait mode goes here */
}

@media all and (orientation:landscape) {
  /* Style adjustments for landscape mode goes here */
}

Well you need to use screen or it won't get picked up by iphone and several others.

There is a specification for @media handheld and @media mobile in the standards but Apple chose to ignore them and present iphone as screen.  Stupid? Yes, but standards and browsers for mobile are about where desktop browsers were ten years ago.

You will need to be careful with resolution specifications as well because a lot of the newer android phones have resolutions up to 800+
