Seems to me that both the nature of the content and the interaction
model is different for wireless devices than PC browsers--so it's not a
case of creating the data once in XML and then using XSLT to get WML for
free. The WML application, to be effective (ha!), needs to be designed
in a way sensitive to the device. Often a part of this could be
abbreviated content, etc. For all XSLT's convenience it can't do that
work for you.
