If you want your online Help to be displayed correctly on a wireless device,
such as a mobile phone, your Help will have to be WML compliant. Information
displayed in handhelds are delivered as decks and cards, so your help system
might need to be structured differently. Also, your graphics will most
likely have to be very basic, since most handhelds do not have much viewing
space nor do they have the resolution of most computer screens.
I hope this helps.

Subject: Small HTML help???
Someone asked me what kind of html help system could be used that would not
be too big to be used when accessed via a mobile phone?
Thinking about it, the help system might not be the problem, as long as the
info is stored on some sort of central server? Of course, the topics
themselves would have to be short with no flashy bits... :-(
