Setting Up a Development Environment

Before starting our mobile web markup work, let’s take a look at some of the best tools, IDEs, and emulators available for our use. In Chapter 13, we’ll take a deeper look at testing and debugging and cover advanced techniques and tools.

Working with Code

For coding our markup, JavaScript, and CSS, we can use almost any web tool available in the market, including Adobe Dreamweaver, Microsoft Expression Web, Aptana Studio, or even a text editor. Some tools, like Dreamweaver (since the CS4 version), work better with mobile markup and allow us to validate against mobile web standards. In this editor, when we create a new document we can choose XHTML Mobile as the document type, as shown in Figure 4-1.
