Javascript –– Intro

Javascript is a client side language, which means that the execution of the script takes place after the instructions have been loaded onto the visitor's browser.  This is useful for such things as letting the user more directly interact with the content on the web page.  I can click a link and change the way a site looks every time I visit that site without the need of actually accessing the site.  I can reload only one part of a page without reloading the entire page.  I can display a realtime clock that displays the current time without having to refresh the page every second.  Data can be verified before it is submitted to the web site.  

The downside is that this is not a very cross browser compatible language, which generally means that there are some extra steps that need to be taken to ensure that the script you create works the same across the different browsers you want the script to be seen in.

complete list of style objects  Every javascript command I can think of is also listed here.

I have found that the official documentation of javascript is difficult to find.  This site seems to be pretty thorough on listing them.
