    I'm having a problem getting a background image to display. I liked what I say at tortola.mobi and wanted to do something similar, but couldn't get my bg.gif to display. It lives in the/images/ folder. Anyone know the proper call out of a div bg image? rep...

However, in order to contribute to the overall usability and premium user experience of the dotMobi domain it is important that visitors to sites have the best possible experience of them, even if their devices do not support the formats that registrants wish to support. Consequently, at a minimum, visitors to dotMobi sites must receive a message that is displayable by their browser, directing them to a portion of the site that is accessible to them, or identifying the type of device that is necessary to experience the site properly.
    Some web sites will adapt their content dynamically to accommodate the type of browser and formats supported by that browser. In this case the site should generate a page formatted in valid XHTML-MP 1.0 (or later released version) if it cannot find a match for the device in question. The user in this case stands a very good chance of receiving a page that their device can display. The content of the page is at the site owner's discretion, and may be a message allowing the user to select a particular type of experience, or may be a message detailing the types of device required to access the service. Site owners are encouraged to support the widest possible range of devices.
    In cases where the site infrastructure does not provide the ability to detect the browser type or formats that are acceptable there must be a page at the domain root that is delivered in XHTML-MP. This does not mean that the rest of the site has to be formatted in XHTML-MP. Sites that cater specifically for some other format may have their entry point identified by a path e.g. a site that is specifically targeted at WML devices only could have its home page at example.mobi/wml. The preferred method of redirection is by using HTTP 3XX codes (see below).

    Default What DTD?

    I posted that because I am puzzled about what DTD to use... there seem to be at least four possibilities (is this the right place for this topic?)


    1. xhtml basic 1.1 (recommended by dev.mobi guide and WCSS)
    still a draft version?http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-basic/

    2. xhtml mp 1.2 (from Open Mobile Alliance (OMA), supposedly to converge with the above - supposedly very similar)
    live site can be tested (not validated)? at http://pc.dev.mobi/

    3. xhtml basic 1.0 code can be validated at http://validator.w3.org/
    CSS is limited in this version

    4. ? use non-mobile specific (x)html and CSS specific to handheld media...

    Confused?
