Product description

Amazon Review

This latest marvel, hot from the Wrox Press, is an example of how all technical manuals should be written. The book covers all the new additions to the Microsoft DHTML model including the latest CSS 2 implementation, native support for direct browsing of XML and XSL files as well as a feature which allows developers to define the methods, properties and events of page elements. Enigmatically called "behaviours", they are the latest brainchild of the Seattle super-giant, and effectively explained in this title.

A concise expositionary style is employed throughout the first half of the text as the authors explain the new technologies, whilst, like the O'Reilly definitive guide series, the second half of the book is a series of appendices. Unlike its competition, this book takes a very practical approach to the subject at hand--without delving excessively into the minutiae of the issues discussed, or causing the sort of coma of disinterest which such thoroughness can engender. The writing may be perfunctory, but it certainly isn't pedantic.

Although it is interesting to read about the new features of Internet Explorer 5, it is unlikely that most Web developers will be using them as core elements within the sites they design, whilst the user base of the browser remains at a comparatively low level. It is also worth remembering that many of the technologies implemented in this latest incarnation are not approved by the W3C, so therefore the standards described in this title may change within the next year; however, for the moment, this book seems to depict the future of the World Wide Web--a crystal ball that few webmasters can do without. - -Josh Smith

Synopsis

This title explores dynamic HTML, and looks at some of the features available using Internet Explorer 5 such as support for XML. There is a reference section on DHTML.

Format: Paperback
This book is very readable, gets right to the point, and will not put you to sleep. Several others (such as Inside DHTML) are so anhydrous they'll suck up all the rain in Seattle. This book however is a great intro to DHTML. You don't have to be an expert in HTML to get a lot out of this book. Has good appendices on HTML, DHTML, JScript, and VBScript.

Fantastic. I bought this book some months ago for our company and it hasn't gathered any dust at all.
This is my all time favourite book although part of my reasoning is down to IE5 and the amazing level of functionality that can be achieved.
Highly readable and the only resource you will need for dhtml syntax.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really usefull Programmer's Reference 8 Mar. 2000
By Morten Jørgensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I knew some (D)HTML before buying this book, but I was looking for a book I could use when I needed to make something besides "normal" DHTML (use on many sites). AND THIS IS IT!
The books first half is about Dynamic HTML (methods, events ect.), and the second half is a really great reference!
This gave me the opportunity to make better pages than on so many other sites, so if you're looking for a book where you don't have to read many pages of useless stuff before getting to the point, then this is defiantly what I would advise you to buy! (A great combination with this book could be "Professional VB6 Web Programming" - Wrox)

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have 24 July 2001
By Ricahrd W. Cole - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Although web browsers have evolved beyond IE5, this is still a great book. It is well organized and easily referenced. I keep it handy for the quick look up need without having to go into the MSDN library. There is a heavy emphasis on VBScript. It is worth the investment.

2.0 out of 5 stars examples use VBScript, not Javascript 25 July 2001
By Adso - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Although the subject matter is well covered, all the code examples that I saw are written in VBScript. That renders the book effectively useless if you code your client side script in javascript (which is the industry standard).
If you are a javascript coder then get Danny Goodman's Dynamic HTML, published by O'Reilly.

5.0 out of 5 stars vbScript is for IE5 15 Aug. 2001
By .Jay Sidman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Code works the examples are easy to follow and the title of the book says IE5 Dynamic HTML which means that it has to work with vbscript. this is another excellent Wrox book
