Microsoft Corp, currently battling it out with Netscape Communications Corp to set the standard for dynamic HTML (CI No 3,117) has become the first of the two to name software vendors and Web content providers interested in using the technology into their own products. Both Microsoft and Netscape have embedded their own versions of dynamic HTML into their respective Internet Explorer and Communicator products. Dynamic HTML will enable the generation of active, rather than static Web pages, without resorting to Java applets or ActiveX controls. (CI No 3,038, CI No 3,114). Macromedia Inc has declared its interest in using Dynamic HTML in its Backstage HTML site creation tool.
