Abstract

In this article, we describe an adaptation proxy we developed as a part of a Kontti research project at VTT Information Technology that lets mobile users access Web content that's not directly targeted to mobile user agents. More and more content is now available on the Internet, and there's a growing need for mobile users to be able to access it. Thus the authors describe the adaptation proxy, which lets mobile users access Web content that's not directly targeted to user agents of mobile devices. The adaptation proxy can adapt Extensible Hypertext Markup Language (XHTML) documents into XHTML mobile profile (XHTML MP) and Wireless Markup Language (WML), and can perform media adaptation. At the system's core is an adaptation framework to which new source and target XML languages can be introduced with relatively little effort.
