Hi all,
as mentioned in the Mobile Checker mailing list, the domain
www.wapforum.org seems to be down since (at least) yesterday,
wapforum.org (without the www. before it) even does no longer
resolve at all. So a DTD like

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.0//EN"
"http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/xhtml-mobile10.dtd">

like used in Google's mobile version and in thousands of other
XHTML sites would not be useful any longer. Any recommendation
from the group, e.g. to simply strip off the URL part in the
DTD, shortening it to
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.0//EN">
like sometimes done in HTML? Or a replacement for the old URL?

There seems to be a proper XHTML mobile-profile DTD at:
http://www.openmobilealliance.org/tech/dtd/xhtml-mobile10.dtd
An overview of their available DTDs can be found at:
http://www.openmobilealliance.org/tech/dtd/
However, I did not find an official statement that this new
URL should be used instead of the wapforum.org domain.

Cheers
Herwig
