0.2. Contents of This Book
This book is divided into four parts:
- Part I, Applying Dynamic HTML
After making sense of the alphabet soup of industry standards
surrounding DHMTL, the chapters in this part demonstrate the use of
cascading style sheets, element positioning, dynamic content, and
scripting events. These chapters reveal not only how each browser
implements the various DHTML technologies, but also how to deploy as
much as possible in a form that works on both Internet Explorer and
- Part II, Dynamic HTML Reference
The chapters of Part II provide at-a-glance references for the tags,
attributes, objects, properties, methods, and event handlers of HTML,
all the time to look up the attributes of an HTML element or to see
whether a particular object property is available in the desired
browser brands and versions. Every effort has been expended to
present this information in a condensed yet meaningful format.
- Part III, Cross References
The chapters in Part III slice through the information of Part II
along different angles. Perhaps you recall the name of an attribute
you found useful some time ago, but don't recall
which elements provide that attribute. Here you can look up that
attribute (or object property, method, or event handler) to find all
the items that recognize it.
- Part IV, Appendixes
Several appendixes provide quick lookup for a variety of values
useful in HTML authoring and scripting. New in this edition is Appendix E, which provides a quick view of element and
attribute support in five popular HTML and XHTML DTDs. A glossary
also gives you quick explanations of some of the new and potentially
confusing terminology of DHTML.
