Chapter 1. Essential JavaScript > Creating Our First Script

Creating Our First Script

This isn’t one of those books that takes you through chapters of dry theory before getting started. This book is written from the scripter’s point of view, which means that we want to put JavaScript to work. It’s time to do that now. Some books wait until Chapter 3 or 4 before even getting to their first script, but not here. Here, we’ll let JavaScript itself do the talking as we start our first script.

Our first script will use JavaScript to write the text Hello from JavaScript! in a browser; you can see that text in Netscape Navigator 6.2 in Figure 1.1, and in Internet Explorer 6.0 in Figure 1.2.
