About the book:

An easy-to-read visual guide, DHTML and CSS for the World Wide Web presents two key Web standards, Dynamic HTML and Cascading Style Sheets. DHTML is a catch-all term for a set of browser technologies, including the Document Object Model and the ability to control it with JavaScript. CSS is a specification for formatting pages by defining and applying named styles. Microsoft and Netscape began to implement these standards in their version 4.0 browsers, but with huge variations that frustrate web designers.

This title is divided into four parts. The first two offer an overview and tutorial for CSS and DHTML in turn. Part 3 is a short guide to two popular tools, Adobe GoLive and Macromedia Dreamweaver. The fourth section puts it all together, with coverage of menus and controls, special effects, multimedia, and general guidance on effective web design. There are several appendices, including a skimpy reference.

The author takes a pragmatic approach, explaining how to build pages that work in both Navigator and Internet Explorer, and including brief coverage of browser-specific features. There is some coverage of Netscape 6.0, with its much-improved DHTML support. Although the author has a brief look at web design tools, the main focus is on the code itself. This is not an in-depth guide, and other titles such as Eric Meyer's Cascading Style Sheets 2.0 have more detail. The advantage of this title is its friendly style, plentiful tips, and clear step-by-step examples, making it a good starting point for those wanting to move on from basic HTML. --Tim Anderson
