Converting HTML & ASP pages to Wireless Web Compatibility

Hello,

I was considering making some web clipping pages of ASP and HTML for mobile users, but unsure how to do so. Palm wants a few thousand dollards for the web clipping ability, and avantgo wants about 5000 per month for this service also. Is there another way to convert pages to this standard?

Thanks,

CompWorld

"Clippings" are just an interim step as devices move towards full browser compatability in a small screen environment. Sites such as Avantgo are limited life span sites. Both palm and PocketPC'ers have full browser solutions now just as NetFront and Pocket IE.

Go low budget and convert your existing templates to small screen friendly. Think in terms of word wrap, little to no graphics. Start by checking out the portal based small screen sites like yahoo, microsofts. That's a good indication of what you can do.

Hello Brett,

Thanks for the reply. That was the way I was going, but I need to find a program that can convert HTML and ASP files to WML format? Is there a program like this available?

Thanks,

CompWorld
