BBC site is alright. That "desktop sized" image is 40kb, thumbnails are 4kb, the layout is optimized to scale with the size of the screen down to 235px wide. AFAIK non-touchscreen phones have a pointer that switches between links. This drop-down menu is toggled by a click which means it should work on all phones.

Anyway, touchscreen phones are likely to have a BBC News app and they don't need this site anyway. That app is really neat, I use it every day.

On the other hand, NHK site screams, "I'm such a cheapo, I can't afford a normal data plan!" and it uses <center>, <font> and <marquee> tags. Which are non-standard/deprecated since HTML4. I hope they feel bad for this.

Speaking of liquid designs this one wins hands down: http://dev.opera.com/ (play with your browser width) \ although I'm not sure whenever it will load images if they are hidden or not or not.

In short: stop praising everything from Japan, Japanese are really bad at webdesign, get Windows Phone 8 when it comes out, drink your milk.
