It Should Know

When I come across links I want to comment on and post to this site, sometimes I’ll email them to myself from my iPhone. It’s not the most elegant process, but it’s simple and it works.
The problem comes when I open said link on my laptop.
This is what I see.
I was listening to an episode of The Talk Show with John Gruber and Dan Benjamin earlier this year and Gruber made a great suggestion. He said in the same way a regular webpage knows to serve you the mobile-optimized version when you’re on your phone, the opposite should also be true – when you open a mobile-optimized version of a web page on your desktop computer, it should know to redirect you to the regular version.

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
