W3C/WAP/WML

Thursday December 9th, 1999

Miloslav Nic writes, "The W3C and WAP Forum launched a formal liaison relationship to define next-generation World Wide Web specifications that support the full participation of wireless devices. The press release speaks about the incorporation of WAP's Wireless Markup Language (WML) features into the W3C's XHTML. By chance this announcement coincided with the start of a new Zvon tutorial: Introduction to WML. :)"

This is good stuff.

One of the things they are working on is CC/PP which is basically a way for a device to tell the server what it's input/output capabilities are. They're also working with WAP on XHTML, so that it incorporates mobile needs.

Eventually you'll be able to have one unified site development effort for the car, PDA, phone, desktop and TV. Mozilla could run on all these devices. This will also help a great deal with accessibility by blind people (note the suite against AOL by National Federation for the Blind).

Is anyone working on this stuff for Mozilla? If so, I would volunteer to work with them on it.
