    Off the shelf packages

    Are there any off the shelf design packages for creating a mobile site which don't require too much technical knowhow? A bit lie a WYSIWYG editor

    Have you taken a look at jQuery Mobile? I've used it for a few projects and it's pretty easy to work with.

    These might be of some use:

    The Mobile Boilerplate is a custom template for creating mobile web apps.

    320 and Up is a set of handy mobile style sheets and more.

    Sencha Touch is also a useful mobile framework, similar to the jQuery Mobile framework that Jeff linked to.

    JQuery mobile serves to translate a existing desktop site into a "mobile friendly" one. On the other hand, Sencha Touch provides tools to aid the creation of a site that that mimics the behavior, look and feel of a native app using web technologies. Sencha Touch still requires a significant amount of work on behalf of the developer being a mvc framework whereas, jquery mobile requires a few configuration options and hoping for just the right amount of sunlight. They are really two completely different things aimed at a difference audience. The other important thing to note is that since Sencha Touch relies entirely on JavaScript applications created in it will not degrade, which isn't all that much of an issue depending on the end goal such as; deploying via PhoneGap.
    The only code I hate more than my own is everyone else's.
