The biggest mistake folks seem to make when implementing java script is they
neglect to give all images on the page whether linked to the script or not a
image width and height atribute. I can not see why you would say that
javascript sucks, I am in love with it, and find that there are a few small
problems and somethings that do not work very well that peolpe have tried,
but basically it gives you a lot more freedom in page design.

Also I must thank everyone who has helped me get up to speed on javascript
and invite you to visit my site where I have implemented some of the better
ideas I have found out in the javascript community. http://bcpub.com
