We have duplicate content issues in SEO. Search Engines like Yahoo or Google doesn't like that

now what if the same content is in xhtml and wml (i mean different markup language). will the engines figure that out?

You know for mobile site we had to create two versions. wml for old phones and xhtml for new ones?

I am confused on this!

Can anyone explain?

The only time a WML version of the site should be served, is when a non-XHTML compatible device is detected.
Try to link to the WML versions cards only within the WML versions cards themselves so SEs have a hard time finding the WML versions.
Then, 301 redirect anything requesting the WML version which is not detected as a mobile device, to the XHTML version.

thanks @joebert
so you are saying to avoid WML versions...

which means http://some-thing.com/index.php will show xhtml until a non xhtml browser is detected?

in that case i had to put both versions(xhtml and wml) in index.php

so they cannot switch the content type? :( like now i have http://marianaworld.com/index.php for wml and http://marianaworld.com/x/index.php for xhtml!

yes they are showing duplicate content (but apparently they are not duplicate)

is there any way around?
