Did your computer fail to open a WML file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .WML files.

What is a WML file?

Files that contain the .wml file extension hold web pages that have been created for mobile and cellular devices. The web pages that are contained in these files are designed with smart phones, Internet-enabled cell phones and PDAs in mind.

The WML file format is based on XML. It is the primary file format for mobile devices that implement the Wireless Application Protocol specification.

WML files are very similar in nature to HTML files, but WML files are written in the Wireless Markup Language rather than the Hyper Text Markup Language that is used for the design of regular website pages.
