Subject Re: [users@httpd] HTTP headers anomaly
Date Tue, 14 Aug 2007 09:16:09 GMT
Thanks, silly me. However am I correct in saying that all mobile devices DO
send the screen size in the http headers - even if not all mobile devices
conform to the cc/pp protocol?

for instance this is the http headers for a PDA (which does send a cc/pp
vocab URL)
------------------------------------------------
accept  :  */*
accept-language  :  en-us
UA-OS  :  Windows CE (Pocket PC) - Version 5.1
UA-color  :  color16
x-wap-profile  :  "http://www.htcmms.com.tw/gen/hermes-1.0.xml"
UA-Voice  :  TRUE
UA-pixels  :  240x320
UA-CPU  :  x86
accept-encoding  :  gzip,deflate
user-agent  :  Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows CE; IEMobile 6.8)
Xda_trion; 240x320
host  :  www.XXXXXXXXXXX.com
Cache-Control  :  max-age=43200
connection  :  keep-alive
content-length  :  0
----------------------------------------------

I am trying to ascertain if there is a rigid standard which all mobile
manufactures adhere to in order to give us humble developers a sporting
chance of creating content which will be viewable on all devices....

Cheers again
Hugh
