Javascript, DOM, DHTML

I’ve entered a javascript, DOM, DHTML, etc. mental assimilaton frenzy the last couple days. The majority of my enthusiasm has been sparked by the Mac IE 5 release, but I’ve been interested in these topics for a while. Plus I find the blogger front page breakage really annoying. It’s been a readlly good learning exercise to go through the blogger pages.

That brings up an interesting point about the web. From an educational perspective it’s great that the majority of the inner working of the web are just a “view source” away, but the downside is that anyone can steal your nifty script or site design.

Oh, and while I’m on the topic of html source, for kicks I’ve been trying various pages on the w3c html validator and there’s a whole lot of non standard html out there. The only error free page I’ve found so far is the validator page itself. I thought that was kind of cool, kind of like a compiler compiling its own source code.
