    • IWMW2009 The Mobile Web – Keep up if you can! Example XHTML-MP (Mobile Profile) Code Things to note about the mark-up: The character <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> encoding is UTF-8 for maximum compatibility. <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.0//EN" "http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/xhtml-mobile10.dtd"> The DOCTYPE is essential. <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <title>My Mobile Site</title> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="mobile.css" /> <meta name="description" content="My Mobile Site" /> The cache control <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="max-age=600" /> header is important because it instructs </head> the browser to use a local cached copy <body > instead of a requesting a new <div> copy from the server if the local copy <img alt="Smiley" src="smiley.gif" width="30" height="30" /> hasn’t expired. This <h1 class="title">Welcome to My Mobile Site</h1> example is set to 10 <p>Page content goes here<p /> mins expiry (600 <p>[1] <a accesskey="4" href="http://m.site.com">Link One</a> seconds). Cache <p /> control can be helpful for downloads on </div> slower networks, and </body> it may save your </html> users money in data download charges. More help  While you code keep this website open: http://www.developershome.com/wap/xhtmlmp/ (it is an ugly site, but replete with great advice!)  A complete list of XHTML-MP tags can be found at: http://htmllint.itc.keio.ac.jp/htmllint/tagslist.cgi?HTMLVersion=XHTML-MP Page 4 of 5
