Exploring WML

WML, The Wireless Markup Language, is an application of XML. It is used to build content for the wireless world via WAP. Because XML is the meta-language from which WML comes, WML is more rigorous than, say, HTML. You must write syntactically correct documents for WML content to be displayed within a WAP device. As with XHTML, WML demands lowercase, the proper nesting of tags, the closing of non-empty elements and termination of empty elements with a slash, and the inclusion of the appropriate XML declaration and DOCTYPE definition information.

WML structure, as you will soon see, is pretty easy to follow. Anyone who has been developing for the Web using HTML and now, XHTML, should find he or she has no trouble. Of course, developers who have used XML for some time will find WML quite easy too.
