Despite recent advances in wireless and portable hardware technologies, mobile access to the Web is often laborious. For this reason, several solutions have been proposed to customize Web pages to mobile access. In this paper, we describe a wrapper system that targets the personalization of Web pages to mobile devices. A personalization is a subpage of a given web page containing just the information that mobile users would like to access using a PDA.
