Looking for a decent book to teach me the magic of reliably coding DHTML pages that don't rely on IE-only techniques Smile

Trying to separate my javascript from my HTML more, i.e. keeping onmouseover, onmouseout etc out of menu systems and generating them on the fly, that sort of thing.

Cheers

DHTML/DOM recommendation?

Hi Seb,
100 posts, well done =D>
One of my favorite books is Dynamic HTML the definitive reference by Danny Goodman.
It's a reference book not something you would read from cover to cover but very handy when you need to find what a property does.
The book is broken up into sections, the first part of the book deals with Applying DHTML then the second and biggest part is Dynamic HTML Reference, which is broken further into HTML and XHTML, DOM, Event, Style Sheet Attributes, JavaScript.
I got the first edition of the book when it came out and liked it so much I got the second when it was available.

The style of book won't suite everyone as it is mainly a reference book but I highly recommend it.

DHTML/DOM recommendation?

Yep, already got that book sitting on my desk, 2nd edition Smile Very very useful as you say, but I could do with something more geared at teaching me rather in addition to this 9excellent) reference.

Basically a DOM/DHTML version of Zeldman's Designing with Web Standards Smile
