Dynamic Web Pages and Cross-Browser Compatibility – Can It Be Done? [B7]


This session is aimed at those who wish to enhance their Web pages with interactivity and animation using Dynamic HTML. Bringing together the technologies of cascading style sheets, client-side scripting and the Document Object Model (DOM), Dynamic HTML can be a powerful tool. However, it also has a reputation for browser dependency.

This session will open with practical demonstrations of some of the problems inherent in creating cross-browser DHTML pages and will then attempt to present solutions to these. Particular focus will be made of a cross-browser DOM, enabling the common address of objects within a page. Attendees will be encouraged to contribute to the session by raising issues, problems and possible solutions that they may have encountered.
