Part 2: Part 2: Dynamic HTML > Internet Explorer for Windows

Chapter 17. Internet Explorer for Windows

Internet Explorer for Windows has several built-in special effects that you can use to add dynamism to your Web pages. These filters allow you to create a variety of special effects, especially for transitions between objects or pages.

Note: The special effects described in this chapter are supported only by the Windows version of Internet Explorer 4/5. They may be pretty cool, but you should use them sparingly because they do not work in the Netscape browsers—or in the Macintosh and Unix versions of Internet Explorer. These capabilities are based on a proprietary technology called ActiveX, which is controlled solely by Microsoft.

Unlike JavaScript or other Web technologies, ActiveX controls are not open standards. Still, they will not interfere with other browsers, so they are all right to use—even in cross-browser situations—to add a bit of spice for your Internet Explorer for Windows users.
