Part V: Dynamic Web Pages > Web Page Scripting for Non-Programmers

Hour 19. Web Page Scripting for Non-Programmers

Scripting is a polite word for computer programming, and that's obviously an enormous topic you're not going to learn much about in a one-hour lesson. Still, there are some awfully handy things you can do in a snap with scripting—and things you can't do any other way. So with a spirit of bold optimism, this hour aims to help you teach yourself just enough Web page scripting to make your pages stand out from the "non-de-script" crowd.

Specifically, you'll learn in this hour how to make the images (or multi-media objects) on your Web pages change in response to mouse movements or mouse clicks, as well as how to automatically add up totals on an order form. Using the JavaScript language, you can do these tasks in a way that is compatible with version 3 or later of both Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Other Web browsers won't respond to your scripting, but will properly display the pages.
