1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Jeremy Pale on June 29 2001
Format: Paperback
The reason this book ranks so high is that it's a thick, expensive, convoluted cookbook of singular examples without any real coverage of the subject matter.
In other words, its a marketing dept's dream!
This book hasn't been updated since 1998, and hasn't kept pace with technology.
..., the last chapter on DHTML is entitled "Looking Ahead to HTML 4.0" We're beyond HTML 4.0 and on to XHTML, XML, etc.!
The fact that this chapter ends on page 163 should tell you something. The Book is 1073 page long! The remaining 910 are poor references for HTML 3.2, Javascript 1, and CSS 1. All of which are out of date. And where is the analysis of the Document Object Model? Oh, I forgot, it gets 2 pages! The DOM IS WHAT MAKES DHTML POSSIBLE...

Format: Paperback
If you do any sort of web design, whether as a do-it yourself novice or as a professional web designer, Dynamic HTML is a must have resource. This all inclusive guide includes a myriad of features for design elements, objects, and styles organized in several easy to understand and easy to use sections: Alphabetical HTML Reference, Shared DOM Reference, Alphabetical DOM Reference, Event Reference, CSS Reference, and Java Script Reference, Cross Reference. All of these examples include actually bit of code that the reader can use as well as associated attributes and their code to tailor that element, object, or style to your desired specifications. This aspect allows the reader to follow through virtually step by step taking a new concept from inception through to a professional look and feel.

I can already tell that Dynamic HTML is going to be one of those desk references that I keep close by my computer. The book is already plastered with a number of post-it notes in places that I need to fix on my existing web pages, concepts that want to experiment with in the future, or ways that I could make my websites more accessible. Having a good book with these aspects all in one place is a boon.

Still, where I will probably gain the most valuable use of this book is in the comparative aspect of the entries. Along with each of the detailed entries in all of the categories, the author has included information about how each feature translates in the different browsers (Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, Mozilla, Safari, Opera, and W3C HTML). Anyone who has spent weeks making their website just perfect only to have their best buddy with a different type of browser say that it's all wonky knows that a good detailed cross reference resource is invaluable. Having one as well organized and intuitive as this one is nothing short of amazing.

Format: Paperback
This book is essential for the Web Designer wishing to do more with the web. Start using it as a learner and before long it becomes your most used reference. Notes on how to access any part of the HTML document programmatically from HTML text, to layers, to form behaivoir. Use this book and you'll be programming not just web pages but web applications. One thing to note, IE allows you to do infinately more with less code so this book has an IE slant. But if you're willing to put your own effort into cross-browser compatibility this book opens the door to accessing things you never thought you could.

I have used this book _extensively_ for several years, it is a terrific reference. What isn't stressed in the description is that in addition to being a DHTML ref, it also has very complete HTML, CSS, and JavaScript refs within it. My only caveat is that as others have mentioned I have found little pieces here and there to be out of date - the odd event which Netscape does now understand, the odd CSS element that IE now does understand, etc.

In my opinion this is an awesome reference book for DHTML,HTML,CSS and the DOM. I have used this book so much that the cover is about to come off of it! The book is sectioned out by references (first HTML, then DOM, CSS, and Javascript). Each of the sections are then in alphabetical order. Also, each tag/function, etc has a compatibilty listed at the top showing what browsers and versions each command is compatible with. I use this book ALL the time.

This is not a book for a beginner, but for the more experienced developer. This book is packed with information. If I had purchased this book when it was first published, I would have given it 5 stars. However, the book was published in 1998, and the content is getting dated -- enough so that I mildly regret buying this book, thus the 3-star rating. Even so, if an updated edition comes out, I will buy it, for an up-to-date reference of this calibre would be a well-thumbed book on my shelf.

For me the most useful part of this book is the 100 or so pages of HTML specification. It specifies the elements, attributes and values accepted by HTML 4.0, IE and Netscape browsers. This is worth the price of the book.
The CSS/DHTML sections are somewhat harder to use. I sometimes have to look several places to find what I am looking for. It is a better reference than guide or tutorial. If I was going to work on a complex DHTML project I would look for another (perhaps newer) reference.
There is also a large Javascript/DOM reference section that I never use. I prefer "Javascript the Definitive Guide" for this subject.
