Unobtrusive JavaScript

Filed under: — 2:39 pm

Just as CSS separates ‘how’ something should be displayed separately from ‘what’ should be displayed there is another necessary level of what ‘behaviour’ should be applied. This is where JavaScript comes in and its a major tool in any web designers arsenal, one I need to brush up on over the next few weeks myself as it so happens. Anyway the best place to start is Unobtrusive JavaScript for just such a mission.

Frankly the majority of tutorials at this point in time still seem to be the old document.all (IE5 and below) and document.layers (NN4) variety, rather than the DOM using getElementById, which doesn’t do me that much good. So this next few weeks I’ll be delving back into JavaScripting the right way cos I’m tired of relying on forums to fix the little things.
