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.
