Note – There are two markup languages used to design mobile
Web pages and referenced above. Your mobile phone browser may or may not
- 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
- 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.
