I am new to Web programming, most of the time have done GUI development in C++/MFC and played a bit with Java/Swing.
I have read about DHTML and its ability to enable interactive Web applications.
Before delving into DHTML programming I would like to know what are the surprises; people in my group ask the following questions:
1. Why do we need this DHTML stuff? (after all, we already have Java)
2. Does it work across browsers?
3. Are there any development tools that support DHTML programming?
4. Can we use DHTML to develop GUI applications like we do with Java?
Thanks for your time,
