Hi Terje

After reading the patent I may be wrong, but a possible interpretation is
that any HTML browser which is platform independent would fall under this
patent not only WML browsers. Maybe they didn't picked HTML browsers as
target because people wouldn't take them seriously when they are talking
about royalties but to say WAP and WML, something new, this seems a better
pray :-) and it works, they stock value increased.
