I'm currently researching for a mobile version of our website. I had assumed that nowadays most major players in the mobile device market supported http and html - but then I remembered WAP.
A little reading round suggested that not only is WAP still alive and well, but its use is increasing. There also seems to be some suggestion that the latest WAP specifications are XHTML compliant.
So I'm confused - is there anything I need to *do* to be able to deliver my mobile content via WAP? Change the DTD? Switch something on on my web server? Detect WAP browsers and deliver content in WML? Or is this a red herring I don't really need to bother
Help and advice much appreciated?

If you use ASP.NET mobile controls, you can need not worry about rendering, as the controls all support adaptive rendering. What that means is the framework will detect the mobile device's supported mode and render out the compatible markup.
I am not sure how things have progressed, but a year or 2 ago, the best bet for compatibility was to ensure your markup is XHTML compliant.
