If you're a web developer today, you need to keep track of an enormous amount of information. In particular, you need to know the details about a variety of web specifications and their implementation in the latest versions of the popular browsers. Rather than try to remember all of these details or juggle dozens of reference books covering everything from CSS to JavaScript, you can have all the information at your fingertips with the newly revised Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference. A favorite of web content developers since its first release, this book is an indispensable compendium for web development. Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference, 2nd Edition, contains everything you'll need in order to create functional cross-platform web applications. The new edition has been updated to cover the latest specifications, including HTML 4.01, CSS Level 2, DOM Level 2, and JavaScript 1.5, as well as the latest browsers, Internet Explorer 6 (Windows), Internet Explorer 5.1 (Mac), Netscape Navigator 6 and 7, and Mozilla 1.0. You'll learn how these standards and technologies relate to one another and how the creation of Dynamic HTML content relies on these four technologies. The book includes: A complete reference for all of the HTML tags, CSS style attributes, document object model attributes, methods, and event handlers, and core JavaScript objects supported by the various standards and the latest versions of Netscape and Internet Explorer. Handy cross-referenced indexes that make it easy to find interrelated HTML tags, style attributes, and document object model methods, attributes, and event handlers. An advanced introduction to creating dynamic web content that addresses the cross-platform compromises inherent in web page design today and encourages developers to adopt the W3C standards. If you have experience with basic web page creation, but are new to the world of dynamic content, Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference will jump-start your development efforts. If you're an experienced Web programmer, you'll find the browser-compatibility information invaluable. This book is the only DHTML reference a web developer needs.

About the author (2002)

has been writing about personal computers and consumer electronics since the late 1970s. In 2001, he celebrated 20 years as a free lance writer and programmer, having published hundreds of magazine articles, several commercial software products, and three dozen computer books. Through the years, his most popular book titles on HyperCard, AppleScript, JavaScript, and Dynamic HTML have covered programming environments that are both accessible to non-professionals yet powerful enough to engage experts. His JavaScript Bible book is now in its fourth edition. To keep up to date on the needs of web developers for his recent books, Danny is also a programming consultant to some of the industry's top intranet development groups and corporations. His expertise in implementing sensible cross-browser client-side scripting solutions is in high demand and allows him to, in his words, "get code under my fingernails while solving real-world problems." Danny was born in Chicago, Illinois during the Truman Administration. He earned a B.A. and M.A. in Classical Antiquity from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He moved to California in 1983 and lives in a small San Francisco area coastal community, where he alternates views between computer screens and the Pacific Ocean.
