    Talking Yorishiku...

    Hi, I'm Daemonchan, an anime freak and budding webmistress. I've finally worked my way through HTML and am eager to sink my teeth into CSS and JavaScript. I run an anime fan site, with fiction and graphic art, and am always looking to improve the layout and user friendliness.

    I've also decided that JavaScript is harder to understand than Japanese.

    I look forward to learning from all the talent here...

    haha as dean (or zaire?)(can't remember haha) would say..."JavaScript is useful in somethings(I hate to admit it)"... there are a few neat tricks you can do with JavaScript. Once you get ahold of the concept it's just learning the functions that's why I got a book with all the functions. CSS is cake after you know the concept. Well unless your planning on doing some really advanced stuff but I don't so to me it's cake once you get the concept of it




    I recommend learning PHP...it's easier than JavaScript...

    So, Derek, what's the name of the book with all the JavaScript functions? (I've been looking for a good one for a couple years and just wasted $25 on Sams Teach Yourself JavaScript in 24 hours - it doesn't have much in it.)

    "JavaScript Bible" by Danny Goodman. Highly recommend it.

    Thanks, just saw a used one for $15 and looked at some of the .pdf files that are online - will go order a copy right now. (It looks to have much better samples of coding that the Sams book - I like 'monkey see, monkey do' programming -- it's a lot faster until one finally learns what the hell is going on --- especially when there is no decent 'index' or alphabetic list of tags, commands or other options.)
