Google mobile code example at page [developers.google.com...]

for code examples:

<link rel="alternate" media="only screen and (max-width: 640px)" href="http://m.example.com/page-1" >


<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.example.com/page-1" >

should be

<link rel="alternate" media="only screen and (max-width: 640px)" href="http://m.example.com/page-1"/>


<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.example.com/page-1"/>

according to page


Just reported it to google as I found the error building a mobile site. Surprised it was not caught earlier?

I think it might suggest that not many webmasters are manually implementing mobile solutions (as opposed to off the shelf solutions).
