 Dear Roland Gülle ,

The Mobile Web Best Practice Working Group has reviewed the comments you
sent [1] on the Last Call Working Draft [2] of the W3C mobileOK Basic
Tests 1.0 published on 30 Jan 2007. Thank you for having taken the time to
review the document and to send us comments!

The Working Group's response to your comment is included below, and has
been implemented in the new version of the document available at:

Please review it carefully and let us know if you agree with it or not
before 22 June 2007. In case of disagreement, you are requested to provide
a specific solution for or a path to a consensus with the Working Group. If
such a consensus cannot be achieved, you will be given the opportunity to
raise a formal objection which will then be reviewed by the Director
during the transition of this document to the next stage in the W3C
Recommendation Track.


For the Mobile Web Best Practice Working Group,

Your comment on 3.22 STYLE_SHEETS_USE:
>        If the document contains any basefont, bdo, center, del, dir,  
> font, ins, menu, s, strike or u elements, FAIL
> This is correct, but is this not part of the markup validation?
> If so, why is there no DOCTYPE test?
>       If any element has a style attribute, warn
> Why don't use style attributes on input boxes like:
>    <input type="text" name="number" value="" style="-wap-input- 
> format:NN" />
> if you use a special textbox only on a special page?
>       If the document contains a CSS style element but no externally  
> linked CSS Style, warn
> Why I should only use externally linked CSS Styles? If I use special  
> CSS information on one separate page only,
> why I have to add them in the 'default' or separate  external CSS?

Working Group Resolution:
1. MobileOK tests are intentionally expressed in an independent way.
Section 2.3.1 (Order of tests) says that "mobileOK Basic does not
prescribe the order in which tests are to be carried out as they may be
executed independently". In order to keep the independence of test, each
test description is seen as a unit. 

2. No  ref style attribute - good point but it is deprecated in Basic 1.1

3. Yes per LC-1593 on dropping external style as a requirement
