Dynamic HTML

(1) Refers to Web content that changes each time it is viewed. For example, the same URLcould result in a different page depending on any number of parameters, such as:

  • Geographic location of the reader
  • Time of day
  • Previous pages viewed by the reader
  • Profile of the reader
  • There are many technologies for producing dynamic HTML, including CGI scripts, Server-Side Includes (SSI), cookies, Java, JavaScript, and ActiveX.

    (2) When capitalized, Dynamic HTML refers to new HTML extensions that will enable a Web page to react to user input without sending requests to the Web server. Microsoft and Netscape have submitted competing Dynamic HTML proposals to W3C, which is producing the final specification.
