Contents of This Book

This book is divided into four parts:

Part I

After making sense of the alphabet soup of industry standards surrounding DHMTL, the chapters in this part demonstrate the use of cascading style sheets, element positioning, dynamic content, and scripting events. These chapters reveal not only how each browser implements the various DHTML technologies, but also how to deploy as much as possible in a form that works on both Navigator and Internet Explorer.

Part II

The chapters of Part II provide at-a-glance references for the tags, attributes, objects, properties, methods, and event handlers of HTML, CSS, DOM, and core JavaScript. These are the chapters I use all the time: to look up the attributes of an HTML element or to see whether a particular object property is available in the desired browser brands and versions. Every effort has been expended to present this information in a condensed yet meaningful format.

Part III

The chapters in Part III slice through the information of Part II along different angles. Perhaps you recall the name of an attribute you found useful some time ago, but don't recall which elements provide that attribute. Here you can look up that attribute (or object property, method, or event handler) to find all the items that recognize it.

Part IV

Several appendixes provide quick lookup for a variety of values useful in HTML authoring and scripting. A glossary also gives you quick explanations of some of the new and potentially confusing terminology of DHTML.
