mobile html

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know a good site that explains the basics of mobile webdesign ?
I am targetting japanese mobile phones that have internet capabilities.

One of the things I do not understand is how you can create a textbox for passwords.
If you use the normal html version of an input type="password" you can not enter your password by mobile phone.
the input type="password" takes every press of a button as an entry.
so say your password is afk you have to press the button for a once the button for f 3 times and the button for k 2 times.
this will result in an entry of 6 characters.

does anybody know a solution for this ? except from using a plain text field of course.

I figured out the problem with the password.
the problem was situated 40 cm of the screen (me)
I didn't notice that my cellphone changes to numerical input when you go into a password field

so I have another question.
redirecting to a url does not seem to work on my cellphone
I am trying to do this
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; url=http://www.kyushunetwork.com/mobile/index.php" />

this is supposed to be supported according to the reference here
[a href=\"http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/NOTE-compactHTML-19980209/#ref\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/NOTE-compactHTML-19980209/#ref[/a]

(scroll down to see reference)

any idea what is wrong or another way to do this ?
