HTML stands for hyper text markup language.  It's simply a language used to format a document.  There have 4 versions of it...  So there's HTML1,2,3 and 4.  With each version, new tags are added, and new features.

DHTML stands for Dynamic HTML, and represents the use of HTML in conjunction with some other language to make an otherwise static document dynamic.  These other languages include mainly javascript and vbscript, though a few others are out there...  Most people use javascript for it's wide spread support by both browsers.

Hope that clear up any confusion...  Any further questions about this, feal free to ask!
