Chapter 06. Phase 4: Build and Integrate > Implementing Light Scripting

Implementing Light Scripting

Rollovers, form validation, pull-down menus, pop-up windows — all are the result of light scripting. By “light,” we mean essentially do-it-yourself or basic JavaScript that requires very little understanding of complex programming. Light scripting should not be confused with anything like JAVA, ASP, or PHP. Rather, it is standard functionality that appears in site after site, such as rollovers [6.10]. CSS can also be used to create rollovers; however, it is not widely browser supported (yet). Light JavaScript is code that is included as part of many of the previously mentioned software tool libraries, including Fireworks, Dreamweaver, and ImageReady, and it can also be “lifted,” or shared, and slightly modified to fit to your site's needs.
