    XHTML MP Link navigation order

    Hi,

    When an xhtml page lays out multiple anchor (<a>) links on the same line of a page, some mobile browers would traverse all links, even left-to-right, with pressing the down key.

    For other mobile browers, the down key would jump to another the next line in the page w/o going through the links of the same line from left-to-right.

    I'd like to find out if there is anything in the Xthml MP spec that tells/hints the browser on what link navigation behavior should be used.

    Thanks
    Victor

    u can use accesskey=0 to 9 for
    <a hre="test.html" accesskey="1">helo teting </a>
    this way u can give the user exact navigation control from top to bottom using 0-to-9 keypad buttons of the phones and its the easiest way to navigate the wap-site.
    Kind Regards,

    Hello!

    First, I assume that there is not that kind of information on the specs.

    If are used accesskeys, it should be somehow told to the user, example accesskey number is marked to the link.

    The scrolling is depending the device itself.
    Old devices are using this hopping left-to-right function and new ones goes straight up-to-down.

    that's true.
    Nothing can be done using xHTML in order to control the way links are highlighted.
    Only the browser will determine it

    For example, in NetFront browser for S60 1st/2nd edition, you highlight links by pressing left and right.Each press always select the previous/next link, so you'll never need to perform trick actions to select a link that's not well placed in the screen

    Unfortunatelly it's not that easy in some browsers

    as for access keys, the links would be limited to the few number of keys most mobiles have
