DTDs associated with WAP 2.0

A Document Type Definition (DTD) is a formal description in XML declaration syntax of a particular type of document. It sets out what names are to be used for the different types of element, where they may occur, and how they all fit together. The following DTDs are associated with WAP 2.0

DTDs associated with WAP 2.0
Channel 1.2 DTD http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/channel12.dtd
XHTMLMP 1.0 DTDs available as a zip file or :
WML 2.0 DTDs available as a zip file or:
WAP Push DTDs http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/pap_2.0.dtd
WAP Client Provisioning DTD http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/prov.dtd
WTA DTD http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/wta-wml12.dtd
(it is recommended to use the WML2 DTD for WTA in this release)

XSLT transformation sheets associated with WAP 2.0

As a part of WAP 2.0, an XSLT transformation sheet has been defined to convert WML1.3 to WML2.0. Transformation is needed to support backwards compatibility in the case that an implementation of WAP 2.0 relies on a common WML2.0 user agent rather than a dual-browser with a WML1.3 user agent and an XHTML Basic Profile user agent. The following XSLT transformation sheet is associated with WAP 2.0http://www.wapforum.org/xslt/wap-244-wmltr.xsl
