Publisher Comments:

- Create dynamic Web page content using a widely used JavaScript tasks including assigning values to variables, declaring functions, creating instances, working with frames, and using buttons.
- Two-color throughout! With over 500 Oversized, Annotated Screenshots!
- Each step is displayed with callouts so the reader can see exactly where the action takes place on the screen
- Most tasks are explained using two-page spreads for easy and focused learning - no flipping back and forth
- Consistent placement of information takes the guesswork out of learning
- Web site will feature all code that appears in the text - ready to plug into the user's Web pages!
- The power and relatively simplicity of JavaScript (which allows Webmasters to embed Java-like interactivity in their pages using embedded HTML-like scripts) has created an incredibly hungry and rapidly expanding market for authoritative, successful information on JavaScript.
- JavaScript is an interpreted script language from Netscape that allows programmers to embed Java-like interactivity on a web page using embedded scripts. JavaScripts can be embedded in HTML pages and interpreted by the browser or run at the server (as in ASP) before it's sent to the requestor.
- JavaScript is easy and fast to code, and works best with very short programs--more than 25% of all web pages use JavaScript.
