Wireless Markup Language
For example, the following WML page could be saved as "example.wml":
<?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC "-//PHONE.COM//DTD WML 1.1//EN" "http://www.phone.com/dtd/wml11.dtd" > <wml> <card id="main"> <p mode="wrap">This is a sample WML page.</p> </card> </wml>
WML pages are stored on a web server. They are accessed by a WAP gateway , which sits between mobile devices and the World Wide Web, passing pages from one to the other much like a proxy. This translates pages into a form suitable for mobiles. This process is hidden from the phone, so it may access the page in the same way as a browser accesses html, using a URL (for example http://example.com/foo.wml), if the mobile phone operator has not specifically prevented this.
The PC browser Opera also supports WML.
