Snaevar and Wikidataians,
Thanks for this information. I didn't know about the mobile version of

I wonder how many internet phone browsers the mobile version of Wikipedia
does and doesn't work on.
Since WikiData is designed to interoperate with MediaWiki and
MobileFrontend, as well as the mobile version of Wikipedia (I assume), and
possibly universally on all browsers (might be the hope), I wonder if there
are any "backend" WikiData data base changes that would be part of the
solution to reaching all obscure browsers, - in the emerging world, for

Wikipedia to obscure browsers is a most sensible approach. Is this the
case? If so, how would I add to the mobile version of Wikipedia's code such
that I no longer get the error message "WML content contains invalid
syntax" on my Palm OS 4.0 ?

This is probably a bit out of scope for Wikidata, becouse the issue of how
mobile versions of wikis work with older browsers is an wider issue that
also affects MediaWiki and MobileFrontend.
