DHTML is a marketing term

About: Introduction to DHTML

DHTML is NOT a W3C Standard

DHTML stands for Dynamic HTML.

DHTML is not a standard defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). DHTML is a "marketing term" - used by Netscape and Microsoft to describe the new technologies the 4.x generation browsers would support.

DHTML is a combination of technologies used to create dynamic Web sites.

To most people DHTML means a combination of HTML 4.0, Style Sheets and JavaScript.

W3C once said: "Dynamic HTML is a term used by some vendors to describe the combination of HTML, style sheets and scripts that allows documents to be animated."

Well the w3c standardized the DOM, and CSS, and XHTML but not JavaScript: 3 out of 4 is batting pretty good.  Most of the DHML tools i have seen like Drag&Drop seem to play pretty well with our new browsers.

My question to Shelley:  What do you think ...
