What Is Dynamic HTML?

Dynamic HTML (DHTML) enables you to create an interactive experience for the Web page user. DHTML isn't an official term; it's a term used by Web developers to reference a collection of technologies used together to produce a more interactive Web page. The three main components of DHTML are layers, Cascading Style Sheets (Hour 15, “Formatting Your Web Pages with Cascading Style Sheets and HTML Styles”), and JavaScript (Hour 16, “Inserting Scripted Functionality with Behaviors” and Hour 17, “Adding Advanced Behaviors: Drag Layer”).

DHTML is an extension of HTML that gives Web page developers greater control over page layout and positioning. DHTML also allows greater interactivity without depending on interaction with a server. When people talk about DHTML, they usually mean the combination of HTML 4—as defined by the W3C Web standards organization—and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). These elements work together through a scripting language, usually JavaScript.
