|IE4-specific design in general
||Starting page at Microsoft for all IE4-related
technologies. Demos, gallery, differences 3.0/4.0, detailed overviews and reference links for all the features: Scriptlets, Channels, DHTML, Active Desktop, Active Setup, CSS support, Data persistence, JScript 3.0, Multimedia, Webview, Specs.
||This is Microsoftīs latest "ActiveX SDK",
now named "Internet Client SDK" (InetSDK), because it contains a lot
more information: DHTML, channels, VBS and JS reference, DirectAnimation, DirectShow, Java and ActiveX
documentation, samples and source material plus
documentation on other IE
stuff, including information for VB and VC programmers. Itīs been updated for the final release and is a must have for web and software
developers. The whole things is over 100 MB in expanded format and about 20 or more in compressed format, but you can
get parts of it. If you are just developing web pages you need the documentational parts and some sample stuff, go just for these and you have a 10 MB download which expands to 40 - 50 MB on your disk and is really everything you need to get started with IE4 technologies.
||This magazine of ClubIE contains lots of general
usage information about Internet Explorer and several
primers on the various technologies.
||Introductory site for new IE4 users, contains
"Howto's" about several technologies.
|Microsoft Script Debugger
||If you are serious about scripting IE4 you will need and love this tool. It's now in "final" 1.0 version and not the nasty, clumsy "pop-up when you don't need it" thing you experienced a year ago, when it was in alpha/beta state. It's a useful tool now and doesn't clink in unvoluntarily if you just want to "View Source". You can also start it from a separate link in IE and the start menu now. It's even available in German. Download is about 650 KB.
||Information and a tool for converting fonts into CSS embeddable files.
|Dynamic HTML and Scripting

properties, Scripting objects and methods etc. supported
by MSIE4, in short: your neu reference! You can either
go to Microsoft and browse it online or (recommended) download parts of the InetSDK.

site, no code or examples.

|CSS - Cascading Style Sheets

the only "official" source on style sheets you
can rely on. Date: 17.12.1996.

detailing on some problems, mostly with IE3.

the W3C and a central linking point to get on all
relevant documents and learn about browsers supporting

||This is a straight to the point introduction in the
use of style sheets on the Microsoft site. Excellent for
beginners. Itīs on the MSIE3 implementation of CSS which
is a bit different from the standard and from MSIE4.
|CSS Quick Reference
||This Quick Reference by Stephen Pemberton is
targetted to the "mature" user of style sheets.
Itīs not a documentation.
|No Style Pages
||This is a detailed overview by Braden N. McDaniel
what style properties are supported and which are not
supported by MSIE. It covers MSIE on the Mac as well. The
outline follows the chapter structure of the W3C original
document, so itīs a good companion for checking while
you read the spec.
|Web Design Group
||This is part of a general help site for web
designers. Itīs targetted to the novice and slightly
advanced user and usable as a stand-alone encyclopedic
reference if you want to understand the matter without
digging through the "official" material. WDG
emphasizes on accuracy according to the original W3C
documents, not on gmmicks and "work-arounds".
||Impressive effort of a link list to all relevant CSS references
