Web Development for iPhone

Apple finally posts its guidelines for developing iPhone "applications":
Developers can create Web 2.0 applications that look and behave just like the applications built into iPhone, and provide seamless integration with iPhone applications and services including making a phone call, sending an email, and displaying a location in Google Maps. Third-party applications created using web standards can extend iPhone's capabilities without compromising its reliability or security.
Not surprisingly, a little blurb right on the front page essentially corroborates my theory that Apple released Safari for Windows specifically to facilitate iPhone development. ("The first step in developing a web application for iPhone is to ensure it is fully compatible with Safari. Safari 3 Public Beta, now available for Mac and Windows, provides you with the ideal environment for Safari on iPhone compatibility testing.")
