Webpages for phones with WAP technology are written in WML, but what about pages for smartphone operating systems like Windows Mobile? I want to develop a site for smartphones which will contain some graphics.

Smart phones use pocket IE so you should be able to use regular HTML. Here are some things to remember
when building website for pocket IE

- Javascript is supported
- Java applets might only work on certain phones. Canary and Tanager phones have no Java Virtual Machine, hence they cannot   view java applets.
- Cannot use frames
- Style sheets are not supported
- No plug-in hence no Flash
- CODE to make a link dial a phone number <A href="wtai://wp/mc;+44xxxxxxxx">xxxxxxxxxx</A>
- CODe to send SMS message <A href="mailto:+44xxxxxxxxx>xxxxxxxxxx</A>
