Dear www-mobile subscribers:

The Mobile Subgroup of the HTML Working Group has just published
the first Working Draft of XHTML Basic, available at:


The latest version will always be available at:


From Abstract:

    The XHTML Basic document type is a subset of XHTML 1.1. It contains
    the basic XHTML features inlcluding text structure, images, basic
    forms, and basic tables. It is designed for Web clients that do not
    support the full set of XHTML features; for example, Web clients such
    as mobile phones, PDAs, pagers, and settop boxes.

    The document type definition is implemented using XHTML modules as
    defined in "Modularization of XHTML" [XHTMLMOD].

Obviously, mobile devices are the main target of this document type.
We welcome your comments.
