Dynamic Drive

If you’re relatively new to Web programming, then you’re probably just getting a handle on how HTML works. HTML is a great foundation that allows you to construct your pages, but if you want to create attractive looking effects and menus, the standard falls flat on its face. Flash may require too much of a time investment for you to handle, but one quick and easy way to add some great looking effects is through Dynamic HTML (DHTML). By adding just a couple of these DHTML scripts, you can spice up a drab Web site in just a few minutes. To get a bunch of free scripts to play around with, just visit Dynamic Drive.

I’ve used this site repeatedly in the past, and I’m sure you’ll find it to be useful, too. Several script categories are available to browse through, with topics ranging from image slideshows to document effects. One of the great things about this site is that you get a preview of what the code does right within your own browser window. If you like what you see, just copy the code and paste it into the proper area of your Web page. Many of the scripts have specific instructions that you’ll need to follow, but it’s nothing that will make you break a sweat. Adding some pizzazz to your site is made easy with Dynamic Drive.
