Browser war killing the kid called JavaScript
« on: July 19, 2001, 03:06:00 PM »
I came across "dhtmllib" (cur ver.2) by a good Dhtml util claiming browser indipendance (look at  but a pain at the wrong end making it work with Netscape.
For the dinamic menu like this a javascript util is yet to come by (pls correct me if you got any. i will be glad). Had the warriers achieved a common ground and had stabled the platform for javascript vs jscript/vbscript we would have been much ahead in the quality of sites we encounter giving us passivity.
Yet, people have reounded these corners and found recesses. I will be glad if someone kindly shares that knowledge with me.
GOD is real, unless declared Integer...

Sorry? I don't understand  

Although Microsoft sometimes make their own versions of things and add their own features which are not standard and therefore will not work with all browsers, code can be written so that it display properly on all browsers, either by not using the non-standard functions, or by the script recognising what browser is being used and executing the appropriate code.

Are you looking for a DHTML editor? Or a javascript editor?

Are you looking for a dynamic html popup menu script that runs in Netscape navigator and Internet explorer? If so, look at  which runs with version 4 browsers and up.

I hope this answers your questions. If it doesn't please rephrase it and I'll try and help you out.
