Designers Corner

Dynamic HTML and the effects it makes possible have already changed the look and behavior of the Web to a considerable degree, and the rate of change will no doubt accelerate. Most creators of Web sites are vividly aware of the speed of this change, and this awareness can lead one into temptations that may be better resisted.

Such temptations come from the very natural desire not to be left behind, especially in such a competitive field as Web design. The consciousness of rapidly advancing software technology exerts considerable pressure on a Web designer to "keep up with it"—in other words, to grab whatever is newest and most eye-catching and use it on the next page she creates. The pressure increases when one reads authoritative-sounding pronouncements along the lines of "if other Web designers use dynamic fonts, DHTML animations, and special effects, and you don't, pretty soon nobody will visit your site because it won't be up-to-date and splashy enough. Everybody will be at the sites with the most bells and whistles."
