You need to use some kind of scripting language to detect what the client is using and make the switch.  This is usually done on the server with PHP, JSP, etc. (Here's a PHP implementation.)  You can use JavaScript to do the same thing within the browser, but since many  mobile browsers don't support JavaScript this can be a bit iffy.  Here's more info.

When you do this it's important that you have a link on each page that lets the user switch between versions in case the script gets it wrong.
