Title: Google Ads on Mobile Phones: accessibility, standards and
Google's AdWords/AdSense system allows businesses to advertise
on the web. This service was recently expanded to provide
advertisements on mobile phones using XHTM/WAP 2.0, WML/WAP 1.0 and
CHTML/iMode, implemented with PHP, CGI Perl or ASP. This is a brief
overview of how the Google system is implemented and a demonstration.
The differences between the system for desktop and hand held devices
is discussed, as is Google's adherence (or lack of) to web standards.
The accessibility of the ads, particularly for disabled will also be looked at.
