What's new in DHTML?

So what's so great about Dynamic HTML? What's been gained?

In sum, the new DHTML has added much to your ability to set up your HTML pages and change them in response to what the user does. The only problem is that no browser yet supports all of these features and the two biggies [Editor: when this was written], IE+ and Netscape, don't support the same features in the same way, and different versions of IE and Netscape support different features! It's pretty confusing at this point, to tell the truth!

The pages of this site are intended to illustrate how the basics work. But some effects won't work for one browser or the other. Maybe some day...

[Editor: Netscape lost the browser wars and the LAYER tag died with it. DIV remains and works with all of the currently popular browsers (2012).]
