WIRELESS NEWS

Not quite wireless news, but the US soccer team played their best game of the modern era (since 1930), but still lost to the bigger, stronger German team 1-0, in the quarterfinal world cup match this morning.


We are still working on the "history of TNPP" paper. Please send in your comments, if you would like to participate in recording this important part of paging history.


PTC-PWG-Developer Community: This is a PTC PWG subcommittee. This is an open forum to discuss development of solutions using PTC PWG protocols. Protocols include: FLEXsuite (CLP, UAR, GOTAP), WCTP, and RXP.

INTERNET PROTOCOL UPDATE

The following is from an article in Macworld and may be helpful in understanding some of the changes taking place in Internet protocols and how they relate to wireless technology:

XHTML, a bridge between XML's data-organizing capabilities and the easy-to-understand syntax of HTML, was approved by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) [last] year. W3C approval gives the go-ahead for widely deploying the technology across the Web. Developers may be boning up on XHTML syntax, but how will the new markup language affect Web surfers? Users who access the Web through cell phones or PDAs could benefit the most from XHTML, says Simon St. Laurent, author of XML: A Primer, Building XML Applications, and XML Elements of Style. "XHTML is a lot cleaner, so you can build a browser for a smaller device," he says. In the meantime, XML and XHTML implementation is spreading. The XML Web directory XMLTree provides a sorted directory of Web sites built using the metalanguage. The hub site XML.com provides a buyer's guide of XML-ready applications. Future plans for XHTML 1.1 include breaking up the markup language into modules so developers can build browsers composed of several discrete parts. Users can then swap those modules in and out to customize their browsers. In the meantime, XHTML will act as the evolutionary step between HTML and XML. But don't count on HTML becoming extinct. "I don't think we're getting rid of HTML," St. Laurent says. "We're just extending what it can do. HTML will be around for a long time."

The Paging Information Resource in being upgraded to XHTML, which as explained above, is the transitional step between HTML and XML. The conversion process is almost complete. Some pages may not load properly, for a while, as I learn the new techniques of web authoring. (My paging guru yelled at me for continuing to use HTML when we had lunch together a couple of months ago.)
