Javascript and jQuery Resources

JavaScript is the scripting language of the Web. All modern HTML pages are using JavaScript to add functionality, validate input, communicate with web servers, and much more. Use it to change pages on the fly, add scroll to top function, and hide/show objects on a page. jQuery is simply an often-used Javascript library that contains MANY pre-written, pre-tested scripts that you can plug into your html pages-browser compatability built in. Be sure to visit the WEB BLOG section of this website for links to Web Designer sites...they all have great javascript articles, tips etc. There are other Javascript libraries to explore-look around and see which ones you like!
