The power of web site javascript

In the early days of the internet, a website would consist of a static HTML page that consisted mostly of text and maybe one or two images. Hyperlinks would take you to other pages of the web site. Images were kept lean so that they wouldn’t take an eternity to load – these were the days of the dial-up modem.

Then, Javascript came along. Suddenly, web designers were able to control elements on the HTML page, changing their style, and even changing complete areas of the page dynamically depending on the user’s choices.

Javascript is a programming language that is built into all browsers, to specific standards. Javascript code can be written in any text editor, and can be run within your offline browser.
