    DHTML-Dynamic HyperText Markup Language...what a mouthfull -if you want codes please go to the Links Portion of this page.


    ECMAscript was still updated, as with the release of Netscape 4 in 1997, Netscape produced their most advanced technology to date, DHTML. Using a combination of yet more proprietary HTML tags and portions of the new W3C CSS 1 recomendation, JavaScript 1.2 gave programmers the ability to change the CSS style for document companents, in particular the position and visibility of elements on the page, which were adopted by the W3C for their CSS 2 specification. This layers technology was greatly accepted, although little used because of its lack of support for older, and still popular browsers. JavaScript now offered the {} and [] syntaxes for creating objects and arrays (WebTV still does not support {}) but more importantly, the Layers DOM was born.

    As layers became more popular, Microsoft decided to muscle in on the competition, releasing their Internet Explorer 4 browser in 1997. This browser showed programmers just how agile a browser could be. Unlike the Layers DOM model, the proprietary DOM model of IE 4 allowed any part of the document to be referenced, and have any CSS style changed, including many CSS 2 declarations. Most could have their contents rewritten. It also offered many other extensions, such as filters and transitions. This new syntax for referencing document components was more reliable and far more versitile and the W3C decided to adopt many of its syntaxes and components for their forthcoming DOM recommendation.

    In mid 1998, Netscape released a new version of their browser, still relying on the poor layers DOM. They had failed to fix many of the bugs that plagued their browser, despite the new JavaScript 1.3 version. They also released the source code, and stopped charging for their browser. They had hoped to produce the next version of their browser using the open source community. The open source community had more sense, and decided instead to abandon the unstable and restricted Netscape core, in favour of completely re-writing, according to the W3C DOM guidelines.
