    Default Active-x components / DHTML in asp

    I would like to know whether an asp application built with some Active-x components/DHTML will make the application browser dependent or not.

    ActiveX components rely on the Win32 capabilities of Windows 9x and Windows NT ... so they can only be used by users with Internet Explorer running under a flavor of Windows. For Netscape users on Windows to use them ... they must have a third-party plugin to allow them to use ActiveX controls.<BR><BR>Dynamic HTML encompasses many different things ... some which are supported by both Netscape and Internet Explorer on various platforms ... but in reality it is a safe bet that most Dynamic HTML is not supported concurrently by Internet Explorer and Netscape.<BR><BR>The Best Practice for web development is to use HTML, JavaScript client-side and VBScript server-side for your development. As great as DHTML, ActiveX Controls, RDS are ... there&#039s really no value in using them in a public capacity.<BR><BR>A good choice for for small purposes such as controls is Java ... since it is implemented widely (as much as I loathe the slowness and ackwardness of it) and will work on almost any platform (except mini browsers and WebTV).
