Book overview

Practical JavaScript for the Usable Web takes a two pronged approach to learning the JavaScript that you need to get your work done: teaching the core client-side JavaScript that you need to incorporate usable interactivity into your Web applications, including many short functional scripts, and building up an application with shopping cart functionality.

The title's 10 chapters discuss both beginning and fundamental JavaScript techniques and terminology, as well as "real-life" issues such as DHTML programming for IE4/NN4 vs. DOM browsers. Other chapter titles of interest include "Advanced Form Techniques," "Passing Information Between Web Pages and Data Storage," and "Functions and Code Design."

Who is this book for?

This is for readers who are either learning JavaScript from scratch, or who have a little experience--perhaps with Dreamweaver behaviours, or incorporating scripts into their pages. It assumes a thorough understanding of HTML, and a little CSS experience.
