JavaScript Today

JavaScript 1.5 and JScript 5.5 represent the latest in Web scripting languages, giving you an awesome amount of power over both how the page looks and how it behaves. When you take JavaScript and combine this with other cutting-edge technologies present in the latest browsers—technologies such as the comprehensive browser Document Object Model and Cascading Style Sheets—you have almost complete control over everything that happens on a Web page.

By using JavaScript and the Object Model of the browser, you can create Web pages that respond to a user's clicks and keyboard strokes. On the other hand, combining JavaScript and Cascading Style Sheets enables you to do things such as hide or display text at will, move images across the page, control the browser window, and much, much more.
