  1. Read the user-agent string from the HTTP request.
  2. Find a tag in the wurfl.xml file whose user_agent attribute matches
  3. with the user-agent string.
  4. Look for the wml_ui capability group inside the tag of step 2.
  5. Check whether a capability named menu_with_select_element_recommended exists
  6. within the capability group of the device. If it exists, read the value of the
