Scripting on mobile devices is hard.
Lots of devices and XHTML (MP|Basic)/1.0 has no scripting support.
WMLScript and XHTML is also not possible.

If you have no content adaption software with an user-agent recognition [1] (there are also commercial solutions available, as example the company I'm working for) there are two solutions:
a) use a non scripting menu solution ;-)
b) use simple scripting and follow the W3C Mobile Best Practices [2]

Hope this helps,

We also have a article which covers AJAX and javascript for mobile. You can read it here.
