DHTM is dynamic HTML. There is no specific definition for DHTML. The
accepted definition it is a combination of HTML and some other
functional and interactive webpages where you can see dynamic fonts,
moving images and interactive forms. From design point of view DHTML
gives the programmers greater control to build responsive and customized
web pages to display information. It also gives some degree of freedom
and control to the users to interact with the webpages. Some of the most
common uses of DHTML are dynamic banners, menus, popup windows, frames
To create the dynamic
effects, we can combine HTML with some scripting or programming
language, cascading style sheets and image manipulation. We can even use
databases and some programming language to create the pages on the fly.
In most cases DHTML also involves manipulation of the DOM or the Document Object Model
. Usually this is done iby using some client side scripting language
While DHTM gives a greater degree of freedom to the developers to
develop visually appealing WebPages, there are some disadvantages
associated with it. Not all the web browsers respond in similar manner
to the programming. So we have to pay greater attention to the way we
build the pages and test them in as many browsers. Even then we cannot
be sure how the users receive the pages.

DHTML Kitchen -The new site features fewer graphics and hopefully better accessibility. AnimTree is a new script that I wrote for the left nav of this site. Unlike the animated menus on open cube, this menu works in mac IE. Also, it degrades to

meets bobby 508 requirements. It's also smaller, it has faster and smoother animation, and best of all, it's free!
