Working with the HTML Source Editor for DAP and DHTML

Dynamic HTML (DHTML) combines CSS, the DOM, and a browser-compliant scripting language. DHTML lets you minimize round trips to the server to make simple Web page modifications, such as changing the color of a block of text when the reader passes the mouse pointer over the region. You don't need to write scripts to create DAP, but adding JavaScript (JScript in Microsoft parlance) or VBScript to DAP offer increased versatility for your DAP designs.

Note

Netscape's JavaScript, which has only a tenuous relationship to the Java programming language, runs in both Navigator/Communicator and IE browsers. Only IE supports VBScript, a scaled-down version of VBA. DAP is an intranet-only technology because of the IE 5.0 requirement, so you can safely use VBScript with DAP. VBScript lets you leverage your VBA skills in DHTML page development.
