Pages for wireless web devices...

What is the best approach to make some web sites accessible via wireless devices? (our company wants to make some news content available to wireless users)

What would be a good starting point? I would appreciate kind of a concise crash introduction on the core of the technology...
eg:
What devices should be supported? Is there "one fits all" approach available?
What technology/languages should one familiarize themselves with?
What is the best approach/architecture?
And so on...

I would greatly appreciate all input...
Thank you!

You will need to learn Wireless Markup Language (WML), if you
are already familiar with html this will be a cinch.

Hi InGearX,

Yes, as rockymagee says, you wil need to learn WML.  In the page at the link I sent above, you'll see "In our WAP tutorial you will learn about WAP and WML."  You may find what you need at the w3schools site.

Peace and joy.  mvan
