Uh, where would that leave the CSS Object Model?

Incidentally, DHTML is a poor term because it 

a) means different things depending on which vendow you speak to
b) the combination of DOM, scripting, CSS,and events plus a markup
language is broader than just HTML; itaplies to all XML as well.

Word processors are not the onlydesign tools used to produce Web
content. Examples authoring applications that produce dynamic content
include Sphinx SVG, IMS Web Spinner and Jasc WebDraw - all of which
produce 'dynamic SVG' and one (IMS) produces dynamic HTML (the IE
flavor) as well.
