Filter Effects


In addition to the many effects that basic DHTML tools offer, you can create sophisticated visual features through a combination of proprietary effects and simple scripts. Although overuse of any dynamic effect can visually overwhelm users and slow the performance of their computers, the limited and precise use of these advanced features can help you highlight the most important aspects of each page and create entertaining presentations. Introduced as proprietary features in Internet Explorer, many dynamic effects are supported by current browsers. Nevertheless, as you implement these effects, it is a good idea to test your presentation in multiple browsers to ensure that you do not lose essential information in unsupported features.
