CSS and "media query" -- smartphone vs desktop

Any chance of Netsurf's CSS handling being extended a bit to support 
"media query"?

Reason I ask is that I want to rejig my various websites (including 
Archive's) so that (among other things) they will be readable on 
smartphone screens as well as desktop screens.

I gather that the "media query" in CSS would make it possible to have 
a single design to which the end-browser will respond accordingly -- 
this would be much more elegant than having separate code for each 
target possibility.

My son Bart (now a pro web developer in Vancouver, but brought up on 
RiscOS so knows the scene) is helping on this.  We're not aiming to do 
anything elaborate, but elegance yes please.

There's probably a narticle for Archive magazine in all this!
