W3C recommends mobile Web standard
The technical specification, called "Composite Capability/Preference Profiles (CC/PP): Structures and Vocabularies 1.0," is a system for enabling a device to communicate information--such as the device's display capabilities and user preferences--to Web servers. By presenting specific profile information to Web servers, that information can be better tailored to a screen size and processing power. The CC/PP specification is built using the Resource Description Format (RDF), one of the foundations of the Semantic Web, a W3C initiative to provide more context for information delivered over the Web.
