Chapter 31. Programmable Elements

If there's one feature of XHTML I love more than any other, it's being able to create scripts for it. I wouldn't be writing this book if I didn't love that so much. As a child I tinkered around with a small number of programming and scripting languages: LOGO, TI-99/4a BASIC, MS-DOS batch files, MS-DOS 5.0 QBASIC, and now JavaScript. I think you can understand why this particular chapter would hold a very special place for me.

As you know by now, (X)HTML supports the capability for you to script it via the <script /> element. However, this particular element is a little more flexible than you might think. You've seen snippets of the element's flexibility here and there; in this chapter I examine it in detail.
