    1. No, you do not need to, because you send the WML to the phone and it processes the WML (how you generate the WML is up to you; you can use PHP, ASP or just edit text files with your favourite text editor and save them on your server.

    2. geocities' web servers are probably not configured to send the correct MIME types for WAP files.

    Whether you should use WML or not is not a question of how simple or difficult it is, but what kind of uses or devices you're going to satisfy.

    WML is for phones with WAP version 1 browsers using WAP to access the site.

    If you want to target WAP version 2 devices, then you should use XHTML.

    If you want to target phones with HTML servers, you should use HTML.
