I have been searching the web and couldn't find anything that helps me out. I already downloaded the mobile sdk from microsoft but it doesn't give me any options in visual studio asp.net to be able to make mobile website projects. What am I supposed to do
to get started?

You should see all the templates under smart device when you click on new project.
New Project - Smartphone - Will show different templates

The problem is that even when I uninstalled the mobile sdk and reinstalled it, I still don't see those options. I'm not sure why

I found out why the mobile sdk didn't install properly but my major problem is trying to figure out what code to use to make my site viewable on all mobile phones. I went to the below link but I can't find out how to define the cssclass for the button. What
my code looks like now is the following:
<mobile:command ID="btnSearch" Text="GO!" CssClass="button" runat="server"
onclick="btnSearch_Click" CausesValidation="False" />
