Re: Documentation and Good Examples.

JavaScript is indeed something different from Java. Java is a compiled
language JavaScript is a scripting language built into Netscape's WWW
browser. Java applets are distrubted as classes (seperate files from the
web page which calls them) JavaScript is writen into the HTML page itself.
While JavaScript and Java share similar syntax they are NOT the same
language and the book on Java will give you only general help on writing
JavaScript programs. Java is MUCH more complex and able to do MUCH more
than is JavaScript.
