How to create a WAP site

In the era of digital technology and mobile speeds, the desire to arm themselves with their own WAP-page on the Internet is fully justified.

Indeed, whatever one may say, only a small island in the sea of ​​network information is simply necessary. For organizations, a corporate WAP site is a kind of business card for a company and a means to lure the right customers. Well, only for ordinary users of the chosen method to publicly declare themselves a mobile universe, probably, can not be found.

So, with the formulation of the problem, we decided, it remains to pick the appropriate tools and find an easy solution. Since the knowledge in the district of programming in the WML (Wireless Markup Language) language is not at all brilliant, we will have to look for something suitable, preferably more simple and visual. Suppose a free editor DotWAP 2.0 (700 KB) from an office called Inetis, located in sunny Slovenia.

The program allows you to not worry about the intricacies of WML programming, providing the user with a small but sufficient capacity of the necessary tools. Manipulating text parameters, inserting images, links and other elements, setting the page encoding and converting images into the near one for the WAP protocol WBMP format — here, not all of the features of this editor are far away.

All intermediate revisions (including the final version of the document) are allowed to track for errors and other shortcomings using the built-in WAP-emulator. A small flaw which - the inability to change the size of the virtual screen.

It is noteworthy that the developers "sharpened" DotWAP 2.0 for their blah blah gratuitous service , providing WAP-hosting also other useful services. However, it is allowed to refuse it, while all manipulations with uploading files to the web server will have to be done manually.

In general, as our brief communication with DotWAP 2.0 has shown, this editor, together with the affordable hosting, is quite good for creating the first mobile pages also mastering the basics of the difficult profession of the WML layout designer.
