JavaScript Power

This chapter doesn't pretend to be a comprehensive coverage of the Document Object Model; this would be a very thick book indeed just for one browser! The plan has been to give you a flavor of the things you can do with examples for you to follow to get the idea of how they're done. The examples are things you can modify easily and set to work to do something useful on your Web site.

As has been said before, browsers are continually changing, and the best source of information about them is the manufacturers, which have vast online resources cataloging the features of their browsers. The Microsoft Web Workshop site alone has hundreds (maybe even thousands) of pages detailing its browser. What stays the same is how you can use JavaScript to use the tools the browsers place at your disposal. Learn JavaScript and the rest is easy, and it's even easier now because both Microsoft and Netscape provide copious JavaScript examples. These examples should be very useful now that you know not only how to write JavaScript but how to read it, too!
