Re: Anyone know how to create a WAP site?
There are three ways to create these content headers. (A) You can create a mime type for WAP files in Apache's httpd.conf file on the web server if you are root on the box, (B) you can create a mime type in an .htaccess file for your directory on your web server, or (C) you can use a language like PHP or Perl where you can explicitly create the content headers and in this case, there is no need to mess with Apache or to "enable the directory" for WAP files.
Once that's done, you will need to write the decks (groups of pages) in XML, not HTML. As with HTML, you can opt to write your XML in a simple text editor or in a fancy wysiwyg editor. Personally, I like simple text editors because they give me more control. So, to answer your question, No, you don't need any special software on your local computer to write WAP decks (but you can use special editors if you want) but you do need special configurations made to your web server and the headers of your WAP files.
There are a lot of tutorials for WAP online. Here's a good one:
It tells you how to configure the mime types in an .htaccess file which is proably the easiest way to go for you.
