You don't need to be a seasoned programmer to master JavaScript--just a copy of JavaScript for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide. This third edition of the best-selling guide includes expanded coverage of such essential topics as how to liven up your pages with dynamic images, add smart forms, and detect which browsers and plug-ins your visitors are using so you can customize the content they see. What hasn't changed is the book's clear, step-by-step approach and generous sample code and screenshots. With JavaScript: VQS, you get both an excellent introduction to the language and a handy reference tool.
