W3C reached an important milestone toward its mission of making it as easy to use the Web on a mobile device as on a desktop computer. Written for designers of Web sites and content management systems, the 'Mobile Web Best Practices 1.0' guidelines describe how to author Web content that works well on mobile devices. W3C invites the designers of Web sites and content management systems to read the guidelines, make implementations, and test their results with the alpha version of a guidelines checker (http://www.w3.org/2006/05/mwbp-check/).
Also, in order to build a strong community of mobile Web developers, W3C has launched a wiki (http://www.w3.org/ 2005/MWI/BPWG/techs/TechniquesIntro) to collect observations and suggestions on techniques and implementation experience of Mobile Web Best Practices 1.0. Thirty organizations participating in the Mobile Web Initiative achieved consensus and encourage adoption and implementation of these guidelines to improve user experience and to achieve the goal of 'One Web.'
