    You have two options, either build a dedicated mobile site (something like m.yoursite.com) which is highly optimized (so reduced images, small scale design - single column sites, works on very small width/height, reduced content to save scrolling, etc) or you could make your own website work easier for mobile devices by using specially engineered stylesheets and UX testing (though it should be noted this is very hard to achieve and requires a lot of trickery). Most mobile browsers these days have good HTML, CSS and JavaScript support as they use equilivent of desktop rendering engines (though avoid using flash, iPhones can't use it) so your site may work fine as it is, the best thing you can do is test on the devices themselves and determine if a seperate "reduced look" would be useful.
