Q&A

Q1: Is this about as complex as a JavaScript program can get?
A1: Not by any means. You can write much more complicated scripts that can encompass several different HTML files.
Q2: I thought the images in the images array were indexed starting with 0, but the game uses the indices 1–5 to display the cards. How does this work?
A2: The game includes a title graphic at the top, which uses the images[0] space. If you add or remove graphics from the top of the page, be sure to change the indices accordingly.
Q3: Why use an object to store cards when the filename (such as 10h.gif) already stores a card's information?
A3: Just for convenience. By using an object, you can individually access the card's value and its suit, which are heavily used by the scoring routine.
