Dynamic HTML 
- Until very recently, you couldn't incorporate any DHTML into any web pages that would be accessed by the masses, simply because too many old browsers didn't support any of the features at all.To some extent, DHTML is still a problem, because Netscape and IE support different subsets and sometimes have subtle differences even for features they both support. That makes it difficult to take advantage of many of the more wonderful capabilities without nasty and complex pages that work around the bugs and differences.
