Javascript Notes

     I have used javascript for several rather non-standard active elements. In my experience with web programming, javascript is vastly under-utilized. This is usually because the programmers are assigned to write Java or other active server-side programs, while javascript is considered part of the HTML markup and left solely in the hands of non-programmers.

     While there are major issues with compatibility between different browsers, well-designed javascript can save an enormous amount of server-side processing and consequent bandwidth.
