I have attached a CTG conformance statement for InstantMobilizer (IM), 
dotMobi's website mobilization service. IM takes content from an 
existing non-mobile site and uses it to create a mobile-friendly version 
of the site on a different URI, by transcoding in real time.

IM uses on-the-fly markup and resource transcoding and hence operates in 
a similar manner to a content transforming proxy. IM differs from 
typical content transforming proxies in a couple of key ways, however, 
and this results in a different set of use-cases that don't map exactly 
to CTG tests:

   1. Transcoding is done at with the express permission of the content
      owner (origin server) --- this changes the relevance of many of
      the CTG tests and is the main reason why I have stated Not
      Applicable (N/A) in many of our responses.
   2. There is no attempt to mask its presence to the user --- IM is not
      acting as a transparent agent

DotMobi has nonetheless tried to comply with the CTG as far as possible 
since we feel that its recommendations are useful and relevant.

Note that the IM service has been superseded by our goMobi service, 
though many of the IM technologies are still being used, including 
transcoding. GoMobi lets you create an excellent mobile website in about 
5 minutes. See http://gomobi.info/ for details.
