New: DOM Scripting WebRing
Tuesday December 7th, 1999
It will also be useful in bridging the gap from the proprietary DOM implementations of the past to the new standards-compliant browsers of the future.
Except for the bogus character entity on the webring's home page. (Or is it just NS 4.6/Mac?)
I'll still sign up, tho' -- as soon as I have time to redo my site.
#2 Next generation? Gods, I hope not

Personally I'd like to see a "next generation" of usable and presentable websites - not gimmicks (or gratuitous web applications that could be better done in Java).
[The website for the class I'm teaching is <http://www.leafdigital.com/class/> - nothing about DHTML but it does contain a whole bunch of stuff about creating good websites, which I would *love* to see actually implemented in the majority of "next generation" websites. :)]
BTW, sorry if this sounds a little bitchy, I don't have anything against this initiative, or DHTML glitz itself which is fine if done appropriately... Just the "next generation" phrase bugged me... it probably wasn't meant that way, but I've seen that kind of thing said several times and it sort of bugs me...

Well you're not bitching, your points are valid. I had to deal with this issue myself.
I remember one site I liked visit had some incredible graphics, but he extensively used Java to decorate each page of his site. This made his site very slow, especially since I was on my older computer, and a pain in the ass.
A little bit of show is not a bad thing at all, just as long as it's not excessive.
