I have a copy of Simon St Laurent's "Dynamic HTML - A Primer"
which you're welcome to borrow.
But DHTML is pretty much dead these days, having been passed by
by a combination of XML, XSL, PHP, JSP and a few other technologies.
It was (as you imply) horribly browser-dependent, which makes it
pretty pointless for transparent Web site development.
A good book is also "Writing Cross-Browser Dynamic HTML" by
Heather Williamson, but the fact that someone had to write a
book to explain the platform incompatibilities indicates to me
that this is a dodo.
What is it you have to do with DHTML?
