DHTML

Dynamic HTML (DHTML) was conceived as a new standard for delivering animated, interactive content on the Web. The only catch is that Netscape and Microsoft, which more or less control Internet standards because of the popularity of their browsers, can't agree on the rules for DHTML. This means that if you create a DHTML site that works in Netscape Navigator, you can't be sure that it will work in Microsoft Internet Explorer, and vice versa.

Still, DHTML makes it easy for Web designers to incorporate very sophisticated animated effects in their Web sites, and it strips away some of the limitations of HTML. DHTML allows you to work with multiple layers of graphics and alpha transparency, for example. It also allows Web page design elements, such as text and graphics, to be animated across an entire Web page—not simply within a narrowly defined box.
