Other browsers (such as the Nokia WML browser) require you to program backward navigation support into the WML markup. Fortunately, using the Mobile Internet Toolkit saves you from having to worry about such idiosyncrasies. The Mobile Internet Controls Runtime delivers the required markup to each of the supported client devices to ensure that backward navigation is always available. Application developers can concentrate on the functionality of the application, knowing that it will behave consistently on supported client devices.

Furthermore, the Mobile Internet Toolkit allows you to customize your application to introduce device-specific behavior. For example, when you use the mobile Image control, you should supply images appropriate to each browser. In other words, you should supply GIF files for HTML browsers, color JPG or PNG files for advanced WAP browsers, and monochrome WBMP format graphics for older WAP devices. Clearly, it is crucial that you test your application on the different devices that are likely to access it.
