Mobile Web Best Practices 1.0

456 Berea St (great site!) has a summery of W3C's Mobile Web Best Practices 1.0. It's stupid to summarize the great summary here, but I am doing for my own "notekeeping" sake.

  • Use link target ID
  • No Pop-ups
  • One way scrolling
  • Use of color
  • No frames
  • No table layout
  • Use text alternative for images/image maps/scripts etc.
  • No embedded object
  • Valid markup
  • Label all controls

I've learned them from trial-and-error approach when I was writing separated CSS files for several Nokia devices, but I am glad to find that W3C is working on this documentation.

Someday, I 'd like to work on my own documentation but I suck at writing. I feel like I am such an idiot after spending 1/3 of my life in the US and still struggling with English language. sigh.

Here's some usuful mobile web related links I've bookmarked/'d:

Sometime it is hard to deal with culture/language barrier but I'm pretty impressed about what you are doing here. Keep up with your
good work :)
