29 UI Designer Questions and Answers:

1 :: Suppose If background and colour should always be set together, why do they exist as separate properties?

The reasons for this are as follows:
- It increases the legibility of the style sheets. The background property is a complex property in CSS. If it is combined with color, the complexity will further increase.
- Color is inherited, but background isn’t. This can further increase the confusion.

2 :: Please distinguish between Static vs. Dynamic HTML?

The easiest difference is static HTML once rendered cannot be changed on the other hand dynamic HTML can be changed.
Static web pages cannot have database access but dynamic pages can be connected to database.
Using static HTML no interactions persist between user and server but dynamic HTML has capability to interact with the user.
Static HTML does not require server side coding but dynamic HTML requires server side coding.
No animation, games can be developed using the static HTML but on the other hand dynamic HTML can perform this task.

3 :: Do you know what are different ways to integrate a CSS into a Web page?

There are three ways to integrate CSS into a Web page

a.) Inline: HTML elements may have CSS applied to them via the STYLE attribute.
b.) Embedded: By placing the code in a STYLE element within the HEAD element.
c.) Linked/ Imported: Place the CSS in an external file and link it via a link element.

4 :: Do you know which browsers support DHTML and how will non-supporting browsers handle DHTML?

Version of Netscape navigator and Internet Explorer higher than 4.0 or 4.0 supports DHTML in easy way. But as compared to both browsers Internet Explorer 4.0+ supports the DHTML in the best way.

DHTML includes JavaScript to make the page dynamic and regardless of which scripts is written for and the scripts are designed in such a way that it can be compatible with as many numbers of browsers as possible. The most important thing that must be kept in the mind is that we must test the code before running it over the server or making it live. Also we certainly cannot guarantee that all users will use the browser that will support the scripts.
