Google WML converter

For the past two months, I've been experimenting with web surfing on a low-bandwidth, small screen device with HTTP/HTML and WAP/WML support. HTML has problems with table formatting, images that are too large and awkward horizontal scrolling. WAP/WML is faster and cleaner, but good sites are hard to find.

Google to the rescue again. Google has a search which only returns WAP sites, but even better they have a service which searches their whole index but the resulting pages are filtered through a HTML to WML converter. Point your own WAP device to (Note that this won't work in a standard browser, only on a WAP device like a cell phone-based browser).
