/*
* media.matchMedium()- test whether a CSS media type or media query applies
* primary author: Scott Jehl
* Copyright (c) 2010 Filament Group, Inc
* MIT license
* adapted by Paul Irish to use the matchMedium API
* http://www.w3.org/TR/cssom-view/#media
* Doesn't implement media.type as there's no way for crossbrowser property
* getters. instead of media.type == 'tv' just use media.matchMedium('tv')
* Developed as a feature of the EnhanceJS Framework (enhancejs.googlecode.com)
* thx to:
- phpied.com/dynamic-script-and-style-elements-in-ie for inner css text trick
- @paul_irish for fakeBody trick

/*
* EXAMPLE USAGE
*/
//test 'tv' media type
if (media.matchMedium('tv')) {
// tv media type supported
}
//test a mobile device media query
if (media.matchMedium('screen and (device-max-width: 480px)')) {
// smartphone/iphone... maybe run some small-screen related dom scripting?
}
//test landscape orientation
if (media.matchMedium('(orientation:landscape)')) {
// probably tablet in widescreen view
}
