Proposed restatement of the Abstract [1] and Introduction [2]




This document supplements W3C Mobile Web Best Practices 1.0 [BP] by 
providing additional assessments for conformance to Best Practice and 
some additional interpretation of the Best Practices.

1 Introduction
1.1 Purpose

The purpose of this document is to help content providers conform to 
Mobile Web Best Practices, by providing additional tests for their 
content and by interpreting and clarifying Best Practices in some cases.

Mobile Web Best Practices contains sections against each best practice 
called "What to Test". The tests in this document supplement those tests.

1.2 Relationship to mobileOK Basic Tests

mobileOK Basic Tests [MOK] describes machine executable tests for 
conformance to Best Practices, when delivering content to the 
hypothetical extremely basic mobile device called the "Default Delivery 
Context" [link] (DDC).

Many of the tests described in MOK are not useful when determining 
suitability of content for use on more advanced devices. Indeed, content 
that is suitable for the DDC (and hence mobileOK Basic conformant) and 
is not available in other forms that take advantage of capabilities of 
more advanced devices may result in a poor user experience on such devices.

1.3 Scope

The scope of this document is commentary on Mobile Web Best Practices 
[MWBP] and mobileOK Basic 1.0 Tests [MOK].

1.4 Audience

The document is intended for creators, maintainers and operators of Web 
sites. Readers of this document are expected to be familiar with the 
creation of Web sites, and to have a general familiarity with the 
technologies involved, such as Web servers and HTTP, with Mobile Web 
Best Practices and with mobileOK Basic Tests 1.0.
