I have a wml page like so:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD WML 1.1//EN" "http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/wml_1.1.xml">
<card id="MyCard" title="Journey Planner">
<p align="center">
<b>Please select a query from the following list:</b>

<a href="Query1.wml">1. When is the next more of transport due?</a>
<a href="Query2.wml">2. How do I get from one location to another?</a>

I simply want to know how to add a background called word.bmp?

How do you change the background color?

How to I change the color of the links?

How do I but links in to other cards?

Thanks a million

"How do you change the background color?
How to I change the color of the links?"

I program in wml 1.0 and have had a look at the next standard and I can't see how you can. The next standard is more XHTML based so I suspect that one might be able to do so in the future. But with WAP phones at the present you can't.

"How do I but links in to other cards?"

By using a <go> element whose href has the name of the card (id) prefixed with a hash character (#).


1) all cards must be in the same deck
2) there is a limit of the number of bytes that a phone can load in one go - ie: a phone limit on the number of cards. I find the limit rather restrictive and only program single cards.
