Sample Code - jQuery Mobile Application
runs well in Ripple (Bold 9700 OS 6 simulator - Webkit browser), but does not work in my Bold 9700 OS 5 device. It looks like that only pure HTML is displayed, no CSS or no JS functionality. There is no header, footer, navbar, buttons etc, only standard links, list items (li), chechkboxes, etc. and text.
Am I doing something wrong or shall I conclude that jQuery Mobile is not supported in OS 5 devices?
Thanks in advance

I think its fair to say that you will encounter an number of issues if using jQuery on OS 5.
Unfortunately - Ripple does not currently disseminated between a WebKit browser and non-WebKit browser. OS 5 and lower used a MIDP-based browser, and therefore supported fewer Web standards than BB6 +. This is the reason why it appears to work fine in Ripple emulating the OS 5 device, but not on an actual OS 5 device.

Thank you. Just to correct a simple misunderstanding: I tried the application in Ripple 9700 OS 6 simulator, not in OS 5.
I tried a very simple jQuery Mobile app that had the JS and CSS files bundled instead of hosted and it worked. I will make some more tests, but probably will target only OS 6+ devices.
