45 most useful guidelines for mobile web design & development

As you may already know, the mobile web world seems like a dark area for many web designers and web developers. There is quantity of myths around it (such as the ones I’ve covered in my book Programming the Mobile Web) and plenty of mobile browsers and different versions. Let’s look at the 45 most useful official resources.

Unfortunately, not every browser has its official documentation available, so my work for the book was more a matter of research and testing over every feature (512 pages are witnesses of this process). And remember: most of these guidelines are incomplete and sometimes inaccurate! However, they can be a good place to start looking at.
