Q) What is DHTML?
A) DHTML, or Dynamic HTML, is a new web technology that enables elements inside your web page to be, well, dynamic. Things once considered unchangeable once the page has loaded, such as text, page styles (font color, size etc), element position, etc, can now all be changed dynamically, thanks to DHTML. It brings your web pages one step closer to how things look inside your television, where images appear and disappear, text flies in and out, and content move around freely inside the screen.

Q) How does Dynamic
A) In two important ways:

Q) Which browsers
support DHTML, and how will non-supporting browsers handle DHTML?
A) Netscape 4+ and Internet Explorer 4+ both support DHTML, although to different extents. IE 4 is more complete in it's support of DHTML, so you will find more scripts in Dynamic Drive for IE 4+ (marked with the IE label beside the script). Regardless of which browser the scripts are written for, all of them are designed to be as compatible as possible to all browsers, including NS 3- and IE 3-. Having said that, you should always test a script on multiple browsers to ensure that it degrades well with all of them.
