I'm interested in getting into DHTML and I was wondering if anyone would care to reccomend a good book.

I'm particularly interested in books that devote all or large amounts of their content to cross browser ( IE & NS ) techniques.

Something short, without fluff ( 3 inches thick, wide margins, huge fonts ), but some good examples would be a plus

The sages from comp.lang.javascript often recommend "Dynamic HTML, The Definitive Reference" by Danny Goodman, published by O'Reilly.

Problem is that it's getting fairly old now, and huge changes are coming our way with the DOM and stuff.

I've just started reading "Creating Dynamic HTML GUIs" by Steven Champeon and another guy, and even though I haven't read the code part of it yet I know Steven is very cross-browser/cross-platform oriented.  I've looked at some of his code, and it's GLP'ed and very nicely written.  So I'd consider it to be high on the "should buy" or "must buy" list.

I bought the O'Reilly DHTML book when it came out and still refer to it often.  It is a great book and is very informative, I will agree with nettrom that it is becoming aged with the changes involving CSS2 and the like.

But it was/is the best book available for the money if you want to know DHTML.

Here are the others;

I would suggest Jason Cranford Teague's
'DHTML For The World Wide Web'. It is one of the Visual Quickstart Guide books and is very informative.
