The World of DHTML

Dynamic HTML is a collective term. It consists of a combination of new HTML tags and options and programming—provided by script—which lets you create Web pages that are more animated, interactive, and responsive than ever before. DHTML can even go as far as allowing Web pages to act and feel just like other applications run on the computer, blurring the divide between the hard drive and the Internet.

The features that combine to form DHTML first appeared in Netscape Navigator 4 and Microsoft Internet Explorer 4. Although the core of DHTML, having its footing in the HTML 4.0 standard, was supported by both browsers, additional technologies are supported by only one browser or the other. This is one of the problems facing developers when they use DHTML on their Web pages; the other major problem is that many Web users out there are not using the latest browser and are still using a version 3 browser or earlier.
