is concerned with code that can be quickly used on a web site. It is concerned 'with
useful stuff, but it is a bit more language oriented and explains how things work a little
better than the other one. It is intended to be easier to understand. It is less concerned
search this site.
So far as I have been able, I have tried to demonstrate on the page
what is being taught on that page. And I copy the code from the page to minimise errors!
This new guide is not better or worse than the previous one. It has a different
emphasis. The previous one is intended to be extremely practical. This one is intended to
explain things better.
The other one was 'a mixture between instructing
and cut & paste'. This one is more about the language!
This one is more geared to those who want to learn the language and more interested in
fully understanding how it works.
One of the problems with producing documents for the internet is that different
browsers behave differently and what works for one might not work for the others. I have
tried to overcome this by writing script that most browsers can read. I err towards
links easier for me, and to make them more reliable for the reader. By freeing me from too
much concern about navigation, etc, I can get to writing this stuff.
So, enough wind and waffle, let's get started!
