IDO, DDI and Tuka all deliver a joint service called CdmaOne
(ezweb and ezaccess), which is the Japanese WAP. The
corresponding markup language to build cdmaone servies is
HDML (=Handheld Device Markup Language).
HDML is not similar to HTML but close to WML (=Wireless Markup
Language), the WAP markup language mostly used in Europe and the
J-Phone delivers J-Skyweb (=neither wap nor i-mode!) and the
corresponding markup language is MML (Mobile Markup Language)
which is similar to HTML and CHTML.
DoCoMo offers I-Mode and the corresponding markup language
is CHTML (Compact HTML) which is similar to MML and HTML.
(This is said to be one reason why DoCoMo fears J-Phone
more as a competitor then CdmaOne although J-Phone has
only a few hundred sites so far. the services are build
with a similar markup language.)
