Android-friendly html

Aug 3, 2012 1:07 PM

Please give me a pointer for info on adapting existing html to work on mobile devices. Current issue is related to selecting the area controlled by an image map. When tapping, and the area lights up as it should, the text in the Title tag is also supposed to pop up, but it does not.


Any ideas appreciated. Is this the correct group for mobile-device html content?

    It might not be an issues of adapting. Let's see the code.

    The text in the title attribute (it's not a tag) will not pop up on mobile devices.  Why?  Because it's a HOVER-triggered event.  There is no HOVER on a mobile device.  There is only a tap.

    That is how the title attribute contents appear.  But as I said, there is no hover on mobile devices, so you will not see it.


    Hovering over this link will display "hello" -


    <a href="#" title="hello">link</a>


    but not on mobile devices.
