ASP.NET Mobile Controls
ASP.NET is a framework to develop web applications over a control-based model. ASP.NET Mobile Controls (formerly known as the Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit (MMIT)) extend the .NET Framework to build mobile Web applications by enabling ASP.NET to deliver markup to a wide variety of mobile devices. You can develop mobile websites using the free IDE from Microsoft Visual Web Developer Express.
