| Yet Another Acronym |
For Web developers, the sudden focus on the new wireless medium is manna from heaven. Not only do they get to rework existing Web sites for the new platform, but they also get to add a brand-new language to their already overcrowded resumes, and throw around yet another acronym at pizza-and-beer gatherings.
However, it's not all fun and games out there. While WML, the language used to WAP-enable Web sites, is a simple and easy-to-learn language, it does come with a bunch of new constructs and entities specific to cellular phones and handheld devices. We've covered most of the important ones in our "Demystifying WML" series at http://www.melonfire.com/community/columns/trog/article.php?id=10, which gets you up and running with the basics of a WML site.
