Dynamic HTML



  • noun a tool for creating limited animated graphics on a website that can be viewed by most browsers. Its major advantage is that it does not require a plug-in to be viewed by users.


  • Abbreviation of dynamic HyperText Markup language. A technology that enables the content of Web pages to be updated as influenced by user actions, without requiring constant downloads from the Web server. Such a page, for example, could provide varied content for each specific user, depending on factors like the geographic location, or information previously gathered, such as pages recently viewed. It is intended to provide better-tailored content while reducing wait time and resources occupied by the server. Its own abbreviation is DHTML.
