DHTML is dead

Jeremy Keith declares: DHTML is dead. In case you missed my rant about the term DHTML last week, I agree: it’s time to dump the term DHTML. It started out as a vaguely-defined marketing term that combined CSS, HTML, JavaScript, a proprietary DOM, and downloadable fonts, and now it is thrown around to mean just about anything.

So, I’m going to avoid the term in the future and use one of the more logical ones: JavaScript or DOM scripting.

...So does this mean the slogan "Putting the 'D' in DHTML" will change? :)

Yes! I'm not sure what to change it to, but it will change. Any suggestions?

"Putting the DOM in world domination"?

(I did think about "dominatrix", which would have been funnier but incorrect :-))

DOM scripting is better - JavaScript might mean client or server side scripting, or shell scripting, or anything, really.
