Hi all,

This is one of a series of emails addressing ACTION-660. This thread
will address the requirements and recommendations for "Constraints and
Capabilities of the Mobile Context - Presentation Issues" in BP2.

Here is the current editor's draft text in the Requirements (2) and Best
Practice Statements (5) sections:
2.7.1 Presentation Issues

As addressed in BP1, presentation issues of mobile devices can also be
applicable to web applications in general, e.g. 
- variations in page rendering/layout in different devices 
- context/overview constraints due to limited screen size and the
limited amount of visible material 
- dependency upon scrolling through material 
- presentation space expense for images and navigation links 
- overall lack of site/content cohesiveness due to fragmentation of
display and site structure

However, advanced web browser features and evolving web technologies are
adding additional specific issues that need to be addressed in the
mobile context, including: 
- support for popup windows and layers which can overlap partially/fully

- support for popup menus 
- dynamic changes in screen orientation 
- need for content adaptation (e.g. image resizing/cropping) due to
variable presentation space 
- overall usability issues resulting from more complex presentation

5.7.1 Presentation Issues
(no text yet)

[bryan] We need specific recommendations to address the requirements
related to the "advanced web browser features and evolving web
