About W3C's Mobile Web Initiative

The mission of W3C's Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) is to make Web  
access from a mobile device as simple, easy, and convenient as Web  
access from a desktop device. Through the MWI Sponsorship Program,  
key players in the mobile production chain, including authoring tool  
vendors, content providers, handset manufacturers, adaptation  
providers, browser vendors and mobile operators lead the Initiative.  
MWI participants develop authoring guidelines, checklists and best  
practices, as well as a database of descriptions that can be used by  
content authors to adapt their content to a particular device. For  
more information see  To learn more about  
the W3C's overall mission and goals, please visit
