Microsoft popularised Dynamic HTML (DHTML) term

Microsoft popularised DHTML

The term “Dynamic HTML” (DHTML) was introduced and popularised by Microsoft. It includes a markup language (HTML), a client-side scripting language (JavaScript/Jscript), style sheets and the DOM.

Thus, DHTML is not a computer language. It refers to three technologies – HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Also, nowadays, using the term DHTML is undesirable because not only has it fallen out of favour but it also conveys an impression of outdated and regressive technology.
