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
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.

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.

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)
