  • HDML (Handheld Device Markup Language) – is Openwave's proprietary Web markup language. HDML pages can only be viewed on Web-enabled mobile phones that use an Openwave browser. HDML was developed before WAP. It uses Openwave's Handheld Device Transport Protocol (HDTP) instead of WAP.
  • WML (Wireless Markup Language) – is an open Web markup language developed by Openwave and based on HDML. WML pages can be viewed on any mobile device that supports WAP. WML is supported by almost every mobile phone browser around the world.
