Hello everyone...!!

Pardon me for having a thread asked about mobile stuff.


ANyway, If I want to develop mobile commerce and its using wap basis.
And the target is those cellphone (mobile) users.

I'm curious, should I use WML or HTML5 or... what?

Please share a bit of sense...

Shouldn't that decision be made according to the user base you're targeting?

Also, don't WAP and WML go together? I don't think HTML is an option if you're using WAP.

Ya, WAP. as of course, even tough, I haven't deeply know about them.
It just people saying, "WAP2, that's nicer!".

I dunno. That's why need some ideas and some advices.

HTML5 is not proper, is that what you suggest? ngg, why errr...?

I'm not suggesting anything about HTML, it's just that I thought it was not an option if WAP is used. Having said that, it's been a while since I've heard anyone sing the praises of WAP - it's dead around these parts for all practical purposes. Of course, that may be different in your neck of the woods.
