Hello,

I have some comments on these proposed values:

The UAProf Schemas don't define SecuritySupport as a bag - it is a
single Property. Therefore, if a phone supports WTLS 1 and WTLS 2, what
should it display? The current UA Profiles available seem to use "WTLS
Class 1/2" or similar.

"1.2" will never be used. At least one current profile uses "1.2.1/June
2000".

WML 1.2 won't be used either.

As WTAI is not compulsory, there aren't many (if any) that support WTAI
fully - I suggest that the most important things to include would be the
ability to make Calls, Send DTMF tones and Add entries to the Phone
book. I therefore suggest a format such as:

WTA.Public.makeCall
WTA.Public.sendDTMF
WTA.Public.addPhonebook

There is a mention in the WAP 1.2.1 WmlScript Spec that the version is
1.1 - it hasn't changed since WAP 1.1.

Best Regards,

Nick Denny
