Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
"Dynamic HTML" is a euphemism for "the standard tags are not enough and you have to learn some programming." Hyman introduces the dynamic object model, Cascading Style Sheets, and scripting languages like VBscript and Jscript. Like most books in the IDG series, this one is well written and entertaining. One caveat: the examples are Microsoft-centric, and some of the nonstandard suggestions here will not be supported in Netscape. For larger collections as an adjunct to Campbell. Since Netscape still has about 60 percent of the browser market, web authors exclude a lot of readers by designing for Internet Explorer 4. Campbell's book is for folks who want to design for all browsers. In a two-chapters-per-day seminar, Campbell covers all the bases and nicely balances the hands-on practical tips with underlying theory. He concludes with some worthwhile thoughts on "How much dynamic is too much?" Highly recommended for both beginners and advanced HTML users moving to the dynamic model and JavaScript. While Darnell does not use the word "dynamic" in the title, his bible covers everything dynamic: HTML, JavaScript, ActiveX, Java and the CGI, and even XML. To cover all that ground, he makes some assumptions, so this is not a book for beginners. It can work as a great quick reference for power users. For larger collections.
