MS ASP.Net Assessment Question: Specify for browser type.

You create a Web Form. The Web Form will be viewed by both mobile and desktop browsers. You add a Label control to the page. You use the following code segment.

When mobile browsers view the page, the Label must render "Name" instead of "Enter Your First Name."

You need to ensure that the Label renders correctly.

What should you do?

A) Add the following XML segment to Ie.browser. <capability name="mobile" value="true" />
B) Use device filters to specify alternate text in the Label definition.
C) Create a new file named All.browser, and add it to the browser's directory. Specify browser capabilities in All.browser.
D)Add the following attribute to the Label. EnableTheming="True"

A - Just states that IE can handle mobile, but don't know if capability is an actual tag.
B - I would think a device filter would be easy, by just checking for WML
C - Creating a All.browser will allow for the page to specify how it is render based on the browser used by the user, but don't think it would allow small cosmetic changes.
D - EnableTheming would just use the theme for that page.

Found this on a 2004 MSDN article which would be nice to use instead:
<asp:label runat="server" text="some browser" IE:text="any IE browser"
IE5:text="the IE 5 browser" PIE:text="the Pocket PC browser" />
