    I'm new to the forum, and to iPad web development as well.
    I'd like to thank any and all of you in advance for any knowledge you may share and also apologize in advance should I do something stupid only a noob might do - post in the wrong forum, miss a covered topic, etc.

    That said, could anyone please help counsel me on where to search for information regarding the site I am designing. I am in need of help designing html pages with attached style sheets that feature vertical images that size their height to the window regardless of iPad orientation. I have been able to achieve the same effect with horizontal images by using:

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-height, minimum-scale=0.1, maximum-scale=1.0" />

    I tried using "height=device-width" to no avail.

    I am fairly intuitive but am not much of a programmer. Any help you could give would be great. Thanks.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad
