    Default Is .wml allowed?

    Are .wml pages allowed on .mobi sites? I am reading a WAP guide and am trying to figure all of this out. Thanks.

    Default I dont know

    http://www.w3schools.com/wap/wap_basic.asp

    WAP homepages are not very different from HTML homepages. The markup language used for WAP is WML (Wireless Markup Language). WML uses tags - just like HTML - but the syntax is stricter and conforms to the XML 1.0 standard.
    WML pages have the extension *.WML, just like HTML pages have the extension *.HTML.
    so it looks like the answer is yes:

    As you can see from the example, the WML document is an XML document. The DOCTYPE is defined to be wml, and the DTD is accessed at www.wapforum.org/DTD/wml_1.1.xml.
    argh a fifth possible DTD...

    I wouldn't bother with WML unless you absolutely have to. IMO, WML is an outdated language. Unless you're concerned with your site being viewed on older cell phones, I would recommend not using WML.

    Good luck!

    You're welcome

    I would focus on learning XHTML-MP. There's a ton of good info at dev.mobi. In addition, here are some other helpful links:

    http://www.developershome.com/wap/xhtmlmp/

    http://developer.openwave.com/docume..._70/index.html

    There are also some good references in the dev section of this forum.
