What Is DHTML?

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 (CSS; see Hour 16, “Formatting Web Pages Using Cascading Style Sheets”), and JavaScript (see Hour 17, “Adding Interactivity with Behaviors”).

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 CSS. These elements work together through a scripting language, usually JavaScript.
