DHTML took the Internet by storm nearly two years ago when Netscape introduced its 4.0 browser. Developers were in awe of the possibilities. Six months later, IE 4.0 was released with broader uses of DHTML. But that was where the thrills ended and the problems began. Netscape and IE handle DHTML very differently. What works for one browser may not function at all in the other. Cross-browser issues have slowed the development of DHTML to a crawl. Web developers have to write their code to accommodate both browsers, making their job twice as difficult. The expense of developing a DHTML site can be astronomical.
That being said, DTML can be very exciting. It opens up many possibilities for the web. This site works cross-browser, but it is optimized for Internet Explorer.
