This excerpt is from Chapter 12 ("Dynamic HTML") of Paul Wilton's book, Beginning JavaScript. It outlines how you can access the tags in an HTML page to change them dynamically and enhance user interaction. It describes a couple of simple (but fun) examples of creating dynamic content in HTML pages using JavaScript for use on Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser, version 4.0 and later. Each of the examples has a full code listing, and an explanation of how it works. To use an example, you can simply type it into a text editor, save it as an .htm file, and then load it up into Internet Explorer.
