Supported meta tags

Meta tags are used to control some aspects of BlackBerry Browser behavior. These tags are defined within a <meta> element of an HTML page using the following syntax.

<meta name="<meta_tag>" content="<directive>" >

The name attribute of the <meta> element is used to define the meta tag, and the content attribute specifies the directive that is used to define the browser behavior associated with the meta tag.

The BlackBerry Browser supports the following meta tags:

Meta tag

Description

Availability

Meta tags used to control display behavior

HandheldFriendly

Specifies that the content is designed for small-screen devices.

The BlackBerry Browser with WebKit supports this value primarily for backwards compatibility. For BlackBerry smartphones running BlackBerry 6 or later, or for BlackBerry tablets, you should use the viewport meta tag instead.
