Aimed at programmers in the middle range of the profession in terms of language used (above HTML and below XML), this reference guide is designed to extend programming capablities without going as far as the complications of XML. The CD-ROM includes sample codes and images.

Information that should allow developers to create or enhance Web sites with increased interactivity is offered in this book. The key features and benefits of dynamic HTML include: better performance since data manipulation is done locally on the user’s system instead of the server; active design surface that lets users see their content as it’s being built; customization options by making all HTML tags, stylesheets, texts, and applets customizable; and open, cross–platform support.

Javascript

This isn’t a hard–core programming book; it isn’t geared toward someone who has a computer science degree from MIT and five years experience of programming in C++. This is the JavaScript book for the rest of us. Written by the author of the ”JavaScript Tip of the Week“ Web site, this book focuses on the most useful and applicable scripts for making truly interactive, engaging Web sites (and it doesn’t proclaim to be the definitive all–knowing JavaScript guide).
