Hi Sérgio;

Yes, I have tried to use IE with my PocketPC way back when I was first
started beta testing PB 11.0 and the new Webform target. I have retried that
recently with PB 11.5.1 and my new WM6.5 device but with no better results.
My conclusion is that the WM version of IE is not robust enough to handle
the heavy HTML, CSS and JS that the Webform PB application sends it .
Therefore cannot render the web pages properly.

The only way I have been able to run web pages properly on the WM device
is to use well formed HTML4 from either pure JSP or ASP technology or
utilizing the web DataWindow through EAServer or IIS based NVUO's. However
with the Web DW, you have to write some PowerScript code to clean-up some of
the HTML. The other major problem is to redesign your web site to fit the
smaller real-estate - which I think is a much harder job. You need to create
very simple screens, tabbed sections, etc that may require you to redesign
intensive data transactions to accommodate the smaller screen size. You also
have to consider navigation aids (CB's, toolbars, link text, etc) that need
to be bigger in order to make it easier for the PPC user to tap. Especially,
when they are using their fingers versus a stylus.

The same holds true for smart phones, tablets and touchpad technologies
as well.
