Abstract

In order to understand how to approach creating HTML and CSS to look and feel like a native mobile interface, we first present common patterns in mobile visual and interaction design as well as highlight specific widgets that are available on different platforms. This chapter also presents specific HTML and CSS code for achieving common effects on WebKit-based browsers. Because, as of this writing, BlackBerry has such severe limitations in browser capabilities, Chapter 14 is dedicated to detailing how to create HTML for the currently available devices. When RIM introduces its new operating systems with a WebKit-based browser, the techniques presented in this chapter may be helpful there as well.
