The Web has revolutionized how we interact with and publish information, but up to now it has only been accessible to people with desktop devices. Web-enabled mobile phones now extend the expected global reach of the Web to three times that of today, touching one-third of the population  of the planet.

The goal of this guide is to provide developers and site owners with enough knowledge to get started with the creation of Web content for mobile users. It covers the benefits of publishing for mobile users, how mobile delivery differs from desktop delivery and how to design for the mobile context.
Before now, Web publishing for mobile users has been something of a mystery, partly because of a lack of information. This guide forms part of dotMobi’s efforts to change this by providing authoritative and comprehensive guides, best practices and methods and other material describing how to publish for mobile.

The guide aims to provide an introduction for those not familiar with the Mobile Web. It contains techniques and information required to create a basic site that will work well on the majority of phones. It is not an encyclopedia of past and present technologies and techniques, but provides a place to start. Although using a .mobi domain is recommended as a clear way to indicate to the user that a site is mobile-friendly, the advice presented here applies to any mobile site.

After reading this guide, you should have a firm understanding of the basics of mobile presentation: what to do and what not to do. This should help you determine how your organization can mobilize its online strategy.
