Chapter 32. WAP and WML

Both mobile devices and the Internet have exploded into widespread use in the past few years, so it stands to reason that the two would be combined. One technology for delivering information to wireless devices (primarily mobile phones, but also pagers and personal digital assistants) is WAP, the Wireless Application Protocol. WAP is a collection of protocols and specifications that work together to give mobile phones access to Internet-like information.

One part of the WAP standard is the Wireless Markup Language (WML), which is used to create wireless applications just as HTML is used to create web pages. WML is an application of XML, meaning that it is defined in a document type definition, or DTD (for more information on XML, see Chapter 30).
