How do I detect Mobile Safari server side using PHP?



Mobile Safari is a very capable browser, and it can handle my website as it is perfectly. However, there are a few elements on my page that could be optimized for browsing using this device; such as serving specific thumbnails that are smaller than the desktop counterparts to help fit more content into the screen.

I would like to know how I can detect Mobile Safari (all versions, preferably) using PHP, so then I can serve a) a specific css file and b) different sized image thumbnails.

Thanks Joe, I read this page and found the WebKit detection library (in JavaScript). PHP file storing on webhosting service?I changed the code to suit my needs.. For anyone that's interested, here's my solution..
<?php  /* detect Mobile Safari */  $browserAsString = $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'];  if (strstr($browserAsString, " AppleWebKit/") && strstr($browserAsString, " Mobile/")) {     $browserIsMobileSafari = true; }  ?>

$_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'] 
That will commit you the user-agent string back which you must compare to mobile safari.. p.s. http://wurfl.sourceforge.net/ WURFL may guidance you determine which UAs you want..

Mozilla/5.0 (webOS/1.0; U; en-US) AppleWebKit/525.27.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/1.0 Safari/525.27.1 Pre/1.0 this is the browser for the palm Pre, and the word 'Mobile' is not there.. I am working on making my detect job fully with all newer capable browsers. After looking at the mytouch, G1, Palm Pre, droid and others, (although not all) I am now confident this is workable for all new phones:. if(preg_match("/applewebkit/i", $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']) && preg_match("/(mobile|pre)/i", $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'])) header("Location: http://simplefoodie.com/iphone/?carryover=".urlencode($_SERVER[REQUEST_URI]));.

<?php  // detect Safari only!  $string = $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'];  if (strstr($string, " AppleWebKit/") && strstr($string, " Safari/") && !strstr($string, " CriOS"))     {         echo 'See in Safari only';     }  ?>
