Product description

From Amazon

An easy-to-read visual guide, DHTML and CSS for the World Wide Web presents two key Web standards, Dynamic HTML and Cascading Style Sheets. DHTML is a catch-all term for a set of browser technologies, including the Document Object Model and the ability to control it with JavaScript. CSS is a specification for formatting pages by defining and applying named styles. Microsoft and Netscape began to implement these standards in their version 4.0 browsers, but with huge variations that frustrate web designers.

This title is divided into four parts. The first two offer an overview and tutorial for CSS and DHTML in turn. Part 3 is a short guide to two popular tools, Adobe GoLive and Macromedia Dreamweaver. The fourth section puts it all together, with coverage of menus and controls, special effects, multimedia, and general guidance on effective web design. There are several appendices, including a skimpy reference.

The author takes a pragmatic approach, explaining how to build pages that work in both Navigator and Internet Explorer, and including brief coverage of browser-specific features. There is some coverage of Netscape 6.0, with its much-improved DHTML support. Although the author has a brief look at web design tools, the main focus is on the code itself. This is not an in-depth guide, and other titles such as Eric Meyer's Cascading Style Sheets 2.0 have more detail. The advantage of this title is its friendly style, plentiful tips, and clear step-by-step examples, making it a good starting point for those wanting to move on from basic HTML. --Tim Anderson

From the Back Cover

Add dynamic interactivity to your Web site with DHTML and Cascading Style Sheets!

  • Targeted to designers and content creators, not just programmers.
  • Visual, task-based format the ideal way to get up and running with DHTML.

This revised and expanded second edition is up-to-date on the current Web standards and browsers, and includes all new coverage of using DHTML to get information about the browser environment and adding multimedia to a site, as well as new basic and advanced dynamic techniques, such as making objects appear and disappear, moving objects in 3D, and adding dynamic content. This edition offers full cross-platform and cross-browser coverage. This book does not focus on the more complex aspects of DHTML, but focuses on practical examples of what really works with DHTML and CSS, making it useful for beginners just starting out with DHTML, as well as professional developers looking for a quick reference.
