Title                   : WML version of repository
Format                  : code and service
Address                 : /home/horton/rds/bin/WAP/*.pl /home/horton/rds/samples/LESS/repository.wml

Abstract                : The reuse repository database has a retrieval only interface available through a WAP phone. The difference to the HTML version is
+ limited page size means browsing mode needs to be broken up into another level. 
  Searches are probably also affected, but that hasn't been a problem to date.
+ The repository database is actually stored as HTML. This typically can't be portrayed
on WML, or worse breaks the content syntax. So HTML is stripped.
+ On the current server (mango) the delivery is very slow, both the page generation
   and the subsequent data transfer.
+ presentation is really too volumonous for WAP phones, but PDAs may be OK. 
  We probably still break max message sizes.
