I have 2 versions of sites one desktop site example: "www.exmple.com" and one mobile site example: m.xxx.com/sitemap.xml
My question is what version of sitemap xml is the most relevant for google to index the mobile version of sitemap?
Do i have to use <mobile:mobile/> tag for the mobile sitemap ? or do i have to add this mobile url to the standard sitemap example: ? Also do i need to add "rel alternate" tag ?

Example for mobile version sitemap: http://m.example.com/sitemap.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"

Example for standard sitemap :

<sitemapindex xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">

Please send me examples of an a correct versions for XML mobile sitemaps.
