of XHTML MP
greatest advantage brought by XHTML MP is that developers can now use
the same technologies for the development of both web sites and WAP
sites. This benefits WAP application development in the following
you are familiar with web technologies such as HTML, XHTML, and CSS,
you can start developing your WAP site almost immediately. If you
are new to the above web technologies and now you learn XHTML MP,
you learn at the same time how to write markup code for the web.
same development tools can be used to develop both web sites and WAP
sites. You can stick to your web development tools to build your
mobile Internet browsing application. This results in a lower
development cost (no need to buy new development tools) and a lower
time investment (no need to learn new development tools).
web browsers can be used to view your WAP site during the
development process. (You should test your WAP site with emulators
and real mobile phones before the final release, since the
characteristics [e.g. screen size, number of colors supported] of
real mobile devices vary considerably.)
/ XHTML pages on your web site can be converted to XHTML MP
documents with minor changes or even without any changes. (However,
you have to make sure that the layout of the HTML / XHTML pages
looks nicely on a small screen and that the file size does not
exceed the maximum page size of your targeted mobile devices.)
becomes easier to find a developer to join your mobile Internet
application development team, since there are plenty of web
developers on the job market.
are some other advantages of XHTML MP:
MP supports WAP CSS, which enables the separation of content and
presentation in different files. As you all know, mobile devices
have very different characteristics such as screen sizes. The
separation of the content and the presentation means you can write
the content once, and change the style and layout to suit different
mobile devices with various WAP CSS files.
XHTML MP and WAP CSS, you have more control over the presentation.
For example, you can control borders, backgrounds, margins, padding,
etc. You can also specify the font sizes, font families and font
colors. Such features are not available in WML 1.x.
