A Note on XHTML
XHTML is a conglomeration of HTML and XML, two types of code used to design Internet pages and applications, and itís the language thatís most commonly used for mobile Web pages. The code uses elements of both languages, and can be applied to any type of Web page, whether mobile or otherwise. Usable tags with this code may already be very familiar to you. Tags including <a href>, <title>, <b>, <cite>, <code>, <em>, <i>, <strike> and <strong> are all used in XHTML.
You can always rewrite your pages, or create brand-new pages, using this code to make them mobile-friendly. Many sites which have already been established online, including big names like Google, create a mirror site (Google, http://www.google.com/m, and Twitter, http://m.twitter.com/login, for example) to serve as a mobile version of their Web pages.
Copying and converting code can be a time-consuming affair, and creating brand-new Web pages from scratch can seem like a big hassle, especially when you already have a Web site youíve worked to create. Is there an easier way?
