1. Dynamic Html : The Html Developer's Guide

Click to order this book

Paperback - 288 pages (November 1998)
This is a wonderful book. It is written by the web master who maintains Discovery.com, the Discovery Channel's website. Rather than present thousands of listings for tags and elements, the author steps the reader through a series of exercises which employ real-world examples of handy techniques. These include useful mouse response issues, pop-up/pull-down menus, time sequencing (invoking events at determined intervals), animation, and ActiveX/Java objects usage. These techniques are designed with real-time consideration in mind, and are neither CPU nor bandwidth intensive. By the time you've read this book, you have a nice set of tools which can be combined to enhance your web site while keeping response/load time at a reasonable levels. The author also deals effectively with cross browser considerations. I highly recommend this book as an intro to DHTML.

2. Dynamic Html in Action

Click to order this book

Paperback - 497 pages 2nd Bk&Dk edition (March 1999)
This edition provides way better coverage of working cross-browser. It looks like the authors put a lot of thought into creating samples that worked in both browsers wherever possible, and told us why when a sample didn't. I thought that the writing was excellent and very accessible, both to novices and more advanced programmers. It includes lots of sample code (on the cd along with some tools and extensive references). This book has a lot more information than the first edition. It also includes a bunch of new IE5-specific stuff, like behaviors. All in all, a great book to learn DHTML.

3. Dynamic Html : The Definitive Reference

Click to order this book

Paperback - 1073 pages 1 Ed edition (August 1998)
No other work has so comprehensively and thoroughly documented "cross-browser" Javascript, DOM, HTML, and CSS in one place. It very clearly tells you what is available and what will and will not work on various browsers and versions -- something that is otherwise extremely difficult to cull from widespread sources. This book is the one book an experienced web developer needs to have. When you reach the point where you don't need to know how to write the code but rather what code to write, this book will save you many hours.

This is a great book for developers who want to get right into DHTML. Begins with a very in-depth study of CSS, an essential component of legitimate DHTML applications.

8. Dynamic Html : Master All the Essentials

Click to order this book

Paperback - 560 pages (February 1998)
I bought this book and typed in every html file. I think this book is worth its name. It does teach you the essentials. Unlike many other books on the same topic, it explains the new techniques through examples. I really like this book's way of introducing a new topic. This way you can feel how it works before you know why it works.

2. Javascript Bible, 3rd Edition

Click to order this book

Paperback - 1015 pages 3rd Bk&cdr edition (March 1998)
This book is one of the best reference tools I've ever used. Not only does it completely describe every difference between IE and NetScape, it goes a step further by providing work arounds that have been tested for years and are certain to work. The code examples contained on the cd that comes with the book are worth the purchase price alone and Danny Goodman is constantly providing updates to those examples at his website www.dannyg.com. With Danny Goodman, you're not just buying a book, you're buying into a world of information.

3. Designing With JavaScript: Creating Dynamic Web Pages (Web Review Studio Series)

Click to order this book

Paperback - 256 pages Bk&Cd Rom edition (September 1997)
If you've been writing HTML for a while and want to get into javascripting this is a good start. You don't have to learn the language of javascript, but instead learn by doing some projects. The projects are really what most people want javscript for anyway: using forms, frames, cookies, and image rollovers. It helps to have a little programming background already. The fact that the book is a little out of date actually helps because everything covered has already been implemented in both browsers by now.

4. HTML 4.0 CD w/Javascript

Click to order this book

Paperback - 450 pages Book & Cd edition (January 1999)
The book is a good solid reference to HTML 4.0, and includes some software on an associated CD. On my version of the CD one of the packages was corrupted, but I suspect that will have been fixed by now. The CD contains sample shareware programs and examples from the books. In common with many book/CD combinations only one or two of the shareware programs may be of use to a particular person, but having the book's examples on the CD is always useful. The book itself contains one or two errors that I found, but these minor flaws are outweighed by the immense amount of information in it. I'd recommend it to anyone with a little knowledge of HTML as a reference.
