This is strictly a technical question and comes from marketing guy....

Can a UX include rollovers in a WAP browser as long as it's done in an XHTML format and do a rollover change via graphics or a style sheet?

If anybody knows, just send me an email....:P

No, cannot be done since it requires scripting.

The version of XHTML that is supported in WAP browsers is called XHTML-MP
(Mobile Profile).
I suggest you download the started to see what is included in that standard.
It is a subset of XHTML as we know it for normal web browsers. Openwave has
some good documentation:

http://developer.openwave.com/omdtdocs/client/pdf/XHTML-MP-Ref-6.2.pdf

And check out this place for some more documentation:
http://developer.openwave.com/dvl/support/documentation/guides_and_reference
s/index.htm

On top of that, there is hardly any mobile phone browser that has
implemented the entire XHTML-MP standard. For example, using background
images only works on some phones and table stuff is also often problematic.

Good luck,

Martijn
