XHTML Basic: Moving Toward Cell Phones
21:29, 22 Dec 1999 UTC | Simon St.Laurent

The W3C, using input from the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) Forum and its own Mobile Access Interest Group released a draft of XHTML aimed at users of smaller devices - like cell phones, PDAs, and other small appliances.

XHTML Basic is derived from XHTML 1.1 using the modularization mechanism described in the draft Modularization of XHTML. (Note that none of these XHTML 1.1 drafts is particularly dependent on XHTML 1.0, currently a proposed recommendation.)

XHTML Basic looks like an attempt to bring Wireless Markup Language (WML) into the W3C's HTML development process, with the apparent consent of WML's creators, the WAP Forum. While XHTML Basic doesn't include alll of XHTML's features, it does include things like text, images, tables, forms, linking, and lists, preserving a fairly rich core.
