Welcome to the Book of JavaScript Homepage!

by Dave Thau (About the Author)

JavaScript lets users enrich their Web pages with interactivity, animation, and other fun and useful features that can make a site worth every click. Unlike many other books, this complete guide teaches the JavaScript language as well as how to apply it. JavaScript savant David Thau guides coders through every hurdle, covering image swaps, functions, frames, cookies, alarms, and other seemingly mysterious JavaScript capacities with ease.

Both reference and tutorial, each chapter addresses a particular function with a real-world example and an appropriate lesson. Readers try their hand and then see how the author coded it. Chapter by chapter, they acquire a range of skills including how to make a Web site remember a visitor's name and preferences. An accompanying CD-ROM includes the entire book, several bonus chapters, and all the coding in the examples.
