Book Excerpt: JavaScript & DHTML Cookbook

he JavaScript & DHTML Cookbook is all about adding value to the content of a Web page. The book focuses on practical and sensible applications of scripting, rather than flying images and gratuitous color changes. For every problem Goodman addresses, there’s a solution or “recipe”?a focused piece of code that Web developers can insert directly into their applications. Yet, rather than just cut-and-paste code, you also get explanations of how and why the code works, so you can learn to adapt the problem-solving techniques to your designs.

The recipes range from simple tasks, such as manipulating strings and validating dates in JavaScript, to entire libraries that demonstrate complex tasks, such as cross-browser positioning of HTML elements and sorting tables.

Chapter 10: “Page Navigation Techniques” discusses how to load a new page or anchor, keep a page out of the browser history, pass data between pages, create menus, and much more.
