WML scripts are not parsed (usually ) from the mobile client, as this is too expensive for the limited hardware of the client and also increases the transmission volume. Instead, a gateway is used, which accepts the WML document and the associated scripts from the server. This gateway encodes the data into a special bytecode, which is to reduce the amount of transfer. This encoded data is now transferred to the client.
Conversely, the gateway, the data from the client contrary, decodes it and sends the uncoded data to the server.
WMLScript parts are either quoted directly within a WML file or outsourced to an external file. The call of a WMLScript function can be called from the WML part or be directly addressed with dateinamen.wml # function ( ).
