Which is better, writing a mobile-oriented site in x/html or wml? I thought wml was the only language for web-enabled phones, but all the mobile versions of sites that I visit are all done in some flavor of xhtml.

It seemed for some time that small devices will only use some sort of WML,however,with the technology advancing everyday(litterally),I'd say scrap the WML and start using xHTML.
I think most of the very recent mobile phones have built in xHTML browsers(and why not? it save heck allots of effort to create same pages twice,since upgrading an HTML page to xHTML isn't a problem at all).

WML is the only language that can be used with WAP phones. Newer phones with GPRS access and larger screens can often use xHTML; WML is actually really easy to use though, and contains some features like variables that allow basic client-side scripting, as well as forms to be used.
