You can use WebWorks to target OS5. Look att the APIs, you can apply a filter that will only show you what's available on that OS.

Although you can use desktop JQuery to build your apps, it's recommended to use a mobile framework for two main reasons imho:

1) The library is less bloated, which means faster loading/parsing time

2) It usually contains controls made specifically for a mobile OS
