Likely not doable directly. That page is designed for a desktop
browser, has WAY TOO MUCH information for a mobile device (typically
300x320 pixels or smaller), and contains Flash for which Macromedia does
not release a plugin for the MBA/AvantGo browser, and I'm going to guess
that some of the Javascript is browser dependent.

Are you really wanting to see that kind of a web page on a mobile
device? How are you expecting users to navigate?

If you have access to the backend systems of that site, typically you
would be getting a data feed that generates the various parts (news
snippets, blog overviews, etc...). From that, you could build a "mobile
portal" of information, stripping out the parts that aren't meaningful
in a mobile context.

Hope this helps,
