JavaScript is an easy-to-use programming language that is common on Web pages. It can enhance the dynamics and interactive features of your site with small amounts of code. Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML), is a group of inter-related Web development techniques (including JavaScript, PHP, among others) used for creating interactive Web applications.

JavaScript Frameworks give Web Site Programming a clean and professional look that would take you months to achieve on your own, if at all. Last week we looked at: Dojo, Rialto and the Spry Frameworks. This week we look at qooxdoo and SproutCore.

we turned our attention to three strong contenders for the title of Framework supremacy: JQuery, the Yahoo! UI Library (YUI) and MochiKit. This week we continue our overview of the twelve most popular JavaScript Frameworks with the Dojo, Rialto and Spry Frameworks. The DOM exposes the style sheets as a property of the document object. Using the document.styleSheets property, you can create, delete and modify existing rules within any style sheet in the page.

Javascript Framework libraries have become an integral part of Web development. This series will present an overview of a dozen of the most popular JavaScript Frameworks. This week's article will focus on Prototype, script.aculo.us and MooTools.

This article discusses how to use JavaScript to validate important types of form data, including names, addresses, URLs, email addresses, phone numbers, zip codes, expiration dates and credit card numbers (Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express, in both Canadian and US formats).

Programmers tend to collect utility functions to perform common tasks. In this article we look at some of the key features of the Prototype JavaScript Framework and demonstrate how it can make your life easier.

I would add that these features should be added as candy rather than dependants even in these times. Ok Javascript is more and more accepted but for an accessible site it should not rely on Javascript.
This also brings into question server sided validation as being key.
