Overview

There are three main technologies married together to create usable, standards-compliant web designs: XHTML for data structure, Cascading Style Sheets for styling your data, and JavaScript for adding dynamic effects and manipulating structure on the fly using the Document Object Model. This book is about the latter of the three.

DOM Scripting: Web Design with JavaScript and the Document Object Model gives you everything you need to start using JavaScript and the Document Object Model to enhance your web pages with client-side dynamic effects. We start off by giving you a basic crash course in JavaScript and the DOM, then move on to provide you with several real world examples built up from scratch including dynamic image galleries and dynamic menus, and show you how to manipulate web page styles using the CSS DOM, and create markup on the fly.

New material for this edition includes a run through of the most popular JavaScript libraries and their use.

"The right book on DOM and JavaScript" - by Twelve Design on 24-MAR-2011
Reviewer Rating: 1 star rating2 star rating3 star rating4 star rating5 star rating
This is the right book about DOM and JavaScript. It covers best practices and also refers to not so good, but commonly used, ways to manipulate DOM. It will help people with no experience to get started on the right foot, and will "fix" bad habits of more experienced developers. Must read for any web developer!
