Hello everyone, i am actually working on the web site for the company in which i work. The web site has been made using a Lotus Notes Database and now i am the responsible to improve the appeareance of the web site.

I am trying to improve this web site implementing nice effects using JavaScript like roll over effects with buttons.

I am reading at this moment the book of Paul Wilton about JavaScript to have a better understanding of how this language can hgelp me to create effects over my web page.
For this i am using the Lotus Notes designer and implementing effects with JavaScript.
I have been reading how to create Pull Down Menus using JavaScript for nicer looking in the web sites.

My question is this: is it possible to implement DHTML in Lotus Notes databases for the web ???
I know the problem that occurs when using DHTML as well, because of the difference in the Browser Object Model the most used browsers use ( Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer ), this is why i would like to know wheter is reccomendable or not to implement DHTML to have Pull Down Menus in lotus databases for the web ????

Have you worked with this kind of applications ???
Where can i find information of how to implement a cross browser application using a lotus notes database to implement a web site ???? Have you heard or watched some web sites using Lotus Notes with this kind of efefcts ???

I need to develop this kind of application in a short time cause people wants to see a nicer web site and more attractive web site for the eyes .

Thanks for all your help

Yes it is possible to have DHTML in Domino.

This link http://developer.netscape.com/evangelism/tools/, gives you the more info on collapsible lists and X browser sniffer.

I have worked on some DHTML + Domino and the results are great.

Goto this site for more references on DHTML: http://developer.netscape.com/evangelism/docs/references/

If you want to implement a drop-down menu system which is not browser dependent, using a java applet in domino, check out the link below at this cool domino website called CodeStore. Also, this web site is such a neat and simple domino web site and a good example of developing cross browser domino web sites. I hope this helps. This web site is also a great resource for developers.

Good call pcorreya.
This is by far the best website on available for valuable tips and tricks for developing domino web sites. I've allready learned a lot from this guy's web site.

As to the DHTML if it's possible to use it in domino. Simply put : YES, just write the HTML-code as passthru-HTML in your forms, pages, ... and it will display just as if you'd created it with a classic web development tool.
