Luca Passani, tools development manager for Openwave (EMEA) believes WML will still be around for some time to come. WML is "the only language that has the necessary constructs to provide a decent user experience on a mobile phone," he says. (See Passani's article elsewhere in this issue.) With the still evolving specification, this lead is likely to be maintained.
