DHTML—What It Is and Isn't

DHTML is a bit of a misnomer. Standing for Dynamic HTML, it implies that the HTML itself provides dynamic behavior to a Web page. Seeing the letters DHTML for the first time, you might think to yourself, “Darn it, not another language to learn.” In fact, DHTML is nothing more than the fusion of HTML, cascading style sheets, and JavaScript.

Caution

If you're interested in building universal sites that are accessible by anyone using any browser, DHTML might not be appropriate for your needs. By adding DHTML content to your pages, you're greatly increasing the browser requirements (versions 4 or greater) needed to view your content.
