Brilliant Javascript

If you are designing websites and need an introduction to programming with the scripting language of the Web, Brilliant Javascript will show you how to use basic javascript programming to to improve the functionality and design of your webpages, validate forms, detect browsers, create cookies, and much more. Summary JavaScript is a critical component of nearly all web pages and web applications, and is the most popular scripting language on the internet, working in all major browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla, Firefox, Netscape, and Opera. It is a very powerful language but often overlooked as such. For years it has been used primarily for two things -- validating form entries, and image rollovers. Yet there is much more under the hood. JavaScript is as powerful and comprehensive as any other development language. JavaScript gives HTML designers a programming tool- HTML authors are normally not programmers, but JavaScript is a scripting language with a very simple syntax! Almost anyone can put small snippets of code into their HTML pages. Brilliant JavaScript will take the reader through the necessary introductory material, and build on this to present practical applicable methods involving text, maths and numbers, and much more. Further tips will be presented in boxouts and text alerts . The book will follow a progression of knowledge; however will be modular in approach. A reader can jump right to the task(s) they need to learn and use. The step by step approach will make it easy to follow how JavaScript is written and implemented -- something that many developers struggle with when it comes to JavaScript's cryptic syntax.
