    XHTML webserver and data headers

    Hi There,

    Two questions:

    1. Is there a special recommendation for running an XHTML webserver or just run apache, IIS or other standard products?

    2. Is there a way to identify XHTML browser display size, client phone type (manufacturer, model) and phone number the client has?

    there is no specific recommendation for XHTML web server. Any web server which can be used to serve normal HTML web documents, is suitable for XHTML content also.

    You can use UAProf and/or user agent header to identify a device. When requesting content from the server, a device sends in HTTP header a specific user agent field and an URL which points to an XML format UAProf file. Files are available on device manufactures´public web server. If you want to customize the service for Nokia browser, you can either use the UAProf architecture to do this or manually pull the information out of the UAProf files, create your own database from this, and use the user agent header to display the correct content (by building logic on the origin server to serve suitable content).

    The list of available UAProf files for Nokia phones can be found at http://nds.nokia.com/uaprof/uaprof_list.txt and UAProf files can be accessed at http://nds1.nds.nokia.com/uaprof/<filename_here>.

    Kind regards,
