It was the whole point of html that it could be rendered on anything.
This is why the community got frustrated with Netscape when they started
inventing non-standard tags, then later, Microsoft, when they started
inventing a completely non-standard web.
To my mind, everthing ever written should be at least checked on lynx to
to see what it looks like. It's amazing how a good site, even a mainly
graphical one, can be quite usable in lynx, and yet a similar but poor
site can be completely unusable. The BBC's website is an interesting
case in point, in that it has a high-graphics & low-graphics option.
My Nokia 770 has Opera on it, and I tend to agree, it works well in this
environment. My Psion 5mx (long since fallen into disuse) had opera on
it, but getting a reasonable ip connection via the infra red or serial
port wasn't that easy. My Nokia 6630 phone has opera on it, although
you can't do a huge amount with it, as the phone interface isn't
brilliant, and the display isn't all that good either. It probably
needs re-flashing, but as I don't use it that much, it's not a problem.
The N770 browser is excellent, although if you look on the maemo site,
there's at least one other browser been ported to the 770. Along with a
stack of other things.
