English term or phrase: card & deck (please see context)
As you probably know, in WAP (or WML), a CARD is the equivalent to a page in HTML, and DECK is a set of cards. How should I translate the terms? Card = carta; Deck = baralho? Like in a "deck of cards" = "baralho de cartas"? It sounds strange, but if there isn't a conventioned Portuguese translation, we'll use the English (US) terms.

If you mean the sequence of pages opened at the same time on your desktop, you can use de above translation. "Baralho de cartas" is more appropriate for the actual game of cards.
