Maybe you've been wondering how to create a dynamic page like the following from your current database. The employee names are linked to an employee details page, and the email addresses are mailto links. To get this listing, the user invoked a URL that ended with a "?deptno=20".
This was produced with the DataCraft-authored code below, which will be included in a Fall 1996 Prima Publishing book on Netscape's LiveWire Pro. While currently a proprietary technology, LiveWire (formerly LiveScript) offers significant ease-of-development advantages over many of the alternatives. Furthermore, it meets our requirement of not using special DLLs or proprietary client-side software; all you need is a browser.
While this code doesn't get into too many subleties, it can at least get you started.
