Now, with JavaScript For Dummies Quick Reference, all the JavaScript statements and examples of how to use them are right at your fingertips. Internet technology expert Emily A. Vander Veer not only organizes all the relevant HTML and JavaScript topics for easy access but also points out potential pitfalls, offers neat tricks, and provides complete code for doing such things as interacting with cookies, displaying pop-up messages, and making your script compatible with JavaScript-challenged Web browsers.
