Chapter 3. Mobile Markup Languages

Now that your development environment is set up, you will explore markup and styling languages that comprise Mobile Web pages. Web browsers on mobile devices are capable of rendering multiple markup languages. This chapter details the most widely adopted mobile markups: HTML, XHTML, XHTML-MP, and WML. I will also cover the mobile-appropriate CSS variants that style the presentation of XHTML-MP, XHTML and HTML documents.

This chapter is a thorough introduction to the syntax and semantics of mobile markup language. It is not intended to teach the desktop HTML and XHTML tag sets or detail all tags and attributes in each language. Many syntax references are available online or in other publications.
