The MSDN-Library "Internet Explorer SDK" or "Web Workshop" are available for subscription == pay for it.
You'll get tons of CDs every 3 month but they are expensive.
Some developer versions of Office 2k/XP come with the "ieref.chm",too, well hidden on the CDs. The newer Frontpage versions may contain it as well - not sure.
The "IE SDK" is basically the Webdeveloper area of MSDN.

As DHTML *is* JavaScript, HTML, and CSS combined, you need to have 3 references finally and glue them together. In the MSDN docs you'll often find a hint saying "the DHTML extension" not "the DOM as known by W3C" - a small but important difference.

I don't know a single all-in-one reference, as the big browsers (still) differ in many places, not to mention W3C standards. Many book claim to teach youDHTML, but the often leave the important parts out and many are outdated.

A pretty good DOM Reference can be obtained from mozilla, although it's not yet complete. Some of the "smaller" elements are still missing. In general, the DOM1.0 stuff there works pretty good w/o changes in MSIE5+ and new Opera7 as well.
http://www.mozilla.org/docs/dom/ (online/zipped + PDF)
and unlike MS they tell what's buggy with their browser: http://www.mozilla.org/docs/dom/mozilla/known.html
they also have a huge comparion chart somewhere listing all properties and attributes of Mozilla, MSIE, W3C and their support - but it's a massive list. This is actually the only one I have seen that may "help" to invetigate certain issues. But it's just a list, just yes/no support, no comment.

NO reference (I've seen so far) will tell you all the issues each single browser(-version) on this planet has; you won't find anything about the box-model bugs in MSIE. They name it "non-/standards compliance". In a reference all is perfect :)

Search http://devedge.netscape.com/library/manuals/ and downloads for their stuff.

hmmm.
I can't find that the Tutorials @ W3Schools are both complete and downloadable - or am I missing some link?

:-) so are those from Mozilla, Netscape and the MSDN.

I though the question was:
> a good DOWNLOABLE and complete dhtml reference

The W3School pages are pretty good to *learn* the basic stuff, but none of what nfernand requested applies to "W3Schools Online Web Tutorials" in particular; nor to MSDN, W3C or Mozilla/Netscape.

I was just curious to find out where on the web this complete and downloadable reference was supposed to be -- it appears there's still no such thing :-)

Have fun,

Hi Cirtap. You're right, W3C schools is not really downloadble guide. Checking others I've found some hard to understand readings and many bulky stuff wich I think make my study more difficult.

I've choose W3 Schools beacuse, by now, I haven't found a better downloable guide, and it seems to be enough for my needings.

Thanks all of you for your help.
