Device Limitations


Mobile devices are changing the way people access the Web, and it is no longer safe to say that a specific device or set of devices will be used to access content. One user may have a small screen, another a big screen, and yet another somewhere in-between. Also, device capabilities may vary between mobile devices, with many now supporting gestures, voice commands, and a variety of gadgets.

  What to Consider

Object Or Script

Do not rely on embedded objects or script.

Tables Support

Do not use tables unless the device is known to support them.

Tables Alternatives

Where possible, use an alternative to tabular presentation.

Style Sheets Support

Organize documents so that if necessary, they may be read without style sheets.

Use Of Colors
