Hi Jonathan,

I completely agree with you on the usefulness of having a more generic testing tool. Right now, the mobileOK Checker is limited to testing mobileOK content, following the rules defined in the mobileOK Basic Tests specification:
  http://www.w3.org/TR/mobileOK-Basic10-tests/

mobileOK's goal is to make sure that a Web page returns content that can be understood by basic mobile phones. Thus the mobileOK Checker behaves as a basic phone limited to XHTML Basic 1.1 among other things. As such, apart from a couple of tests that indeed apply to a more generic context, the report returned by the mobileOK Checker is basically useless here. It should merely be read as:

"This is SVG. SVG is not supported by each and every mobile device out there. Users that try to access this page with a device that does not support SVG will get an error message. See if you can provide an alternative in HTML".

The mobileOK Checker should be much more explicit about the fact that it really just understands HTML and parses everything as such. I created a bug entry to track this down:
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10945

Again, I hope we can create a more generic testing tool in the future.

Well, I'm not sure about this either. I created another bug entry and will investigate:

Thanks for your message!
Francois.
