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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
