You can quite reasonably say this is a server error. If the page
designer had resized the image to the required dimensions in the first
place, it would be smaller, quicker to download, and would not need
resizing by the browser.

How does the designer know beforehand which size will be required? The
background image on the first page is 1500x1000, probably a reasonable
compromise.

That might be OK for a banner; thee are a few page templates that start
with a large image at the top.

But for a portable device that's outrageous!

The answer to "how" _might_ be that the HTML code has a conditional.
It asks what the browser is, the browser itself knows, and the "IF"
clause deals differently with, for example, Internet Explorer vs
Firefox. You'll see this quite often a IE handles some CSS differently.

Fragments like this:

</script>
<!-- JS includes -->
<!--[if lt IE 9]>
<script src="scripts/html5shiv.js?4241844378"
type="text/javascript"></script>
<![endif]-->
<!--custom head HTML-->
<script>

I don't know if that can be applied to 'devices".

However there's also JavaScript.
if you look at the raw feed from wikipedia you'll see that there's
capability for handling smaller screens, dropping the sidebar and
graphics, for phones such as 'android. It is rather rococo!
