javascript wonderland

There is a lot you can do with JavaScript and DHTML. You can have custom pop-up messages, you can make things move around the screen, you can have pop-down menus, you can even send data to web servers (AJAX). But, it takes some work to get everything running smoothly. Especially when you want a certain user interface to work great no matter what browser is used.

jQuery is a great solution for JavaScript and user interface problems. They have a wonderful library of visual affects and more. Just take a look at their demos to get a feel for what I am talking about (in terms of UI). Then, if you want to integrate it into your own site, just download the code and plug it in (with a few tweaks and bumps - but that is expected, right?). It is a great way to get good functionality going quickly and reliably in a web site.
