Abstract: Some mobile devices can access internet, but screen display size is a major restriction due to size limitations. Different solutions have been developed to overcome this problem. The first uses a transcoding server which accesses the original site and converts standard HTML (Hyper Text Mark Up Language) pages to WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) pages to WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) pages. The second approach uses a specific browser that runs on the mobile platform and displays the site in a vertical format. The most popular approach is the transcoding server, for specific usability issues.
