W3C mobileOK Helps People Create and Find Mobile Friendly Content

14.11.2007
W3C Tool Allows Automatic Verification of mobileOK Content

W3C provides new means for people to create and find mobile friendly content. W3C invites Web authors to run the alpha release of the W3C mobileOK checker and make their content work on a broad range of mobile devices.

"Making a Web site work on a mobile device is easier once you have the right tool," explained Dominique Hazaël-Massieux, W3C's Mobile Web Initiative Activity Lead. "Now is the time to reach more people by making your site W3C mobileOK."

Tim Berners-Lee will discuss how mobileOK fits into the W3C Mobile Web vision in his Mobile Internet World keynote "Escaping the Walled Garden: Growing the Mobile Web with Open Standards" (14 November in Boston, Massachusetts, USA).

Tool Helps Authors Follow Mobile Web Best Practices

The W3C mobileOK checker runs the tests defined in the W3C mobileOK Basic Tests 1.0 Candidate Recommendation. The tests themselves are based upon W3C's Mobile Web Best Practices 1.0, published as part of W3C's Mobile Web Initiative. The Best Practices describes how to reduce the cost of authoring and to improve the mobile browsing experience. Any tool that implements the Basic Tests can verify automatically whether content is mobile friendly.

The W3C mobileOK checker is the latest addition to W3C's popular and successful suite of validation services. As an integral part of the W3C standardization process, W3C invites mobile Web experts and the community at large to review the checker and the mobileOK Basic Tests.

W3C mobileOK Content Easier to Find in Search Engines

With Web sites which conform to the W3C mobileOK content guidelines, search engines can better tailor results for a mobile environment, benefitting authors and their audience alike. Sean Owen of Google will be talking about how he and other Working Group members developed the checker with search engines in mind at the Mobile Web Standards Seminar, on 13 November at Mobile Internet World.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
