A particular headache of mine is the amount of neolithic JavaScript that still kicks around the web when modern browsers support the DOM. If you haven’t been out in public for a while thats where you use getElementById to reference instead of document.all and the like. Not only on the web, practically every JavaScript book on the shelves is just plain old fashioned bad coding, too. Reading 2005: The Year of the DOM gives me just enough hope to cross my fingers and hope not to die with document.bloody.all.

The Objectgraph Dictionary toward the end of the article was a pretty useful link, too.
