Cool, I'll fiddle with it . . .

Well, it's not really all that important, most of my functionality is back in
CGIs and the JS is there to do simple UI tasks.  Still, at the moment, I prefer
JS to Java because: a) I can program JS, but I haven't learned Java yet; b) I
don't have a Java compiler; c) JS can interact with HTML objects on the page
around it, but Java applets (as far as I've been told) can't . . .

It was more of a "well, might need this someday" question. :)
