Footnotes

Chapter 1

1. But the creator of JavaScript, Brendan Eich, says it’s even more! In his article, “Innovators of the Net: Brendan Eich and JavaScript,” he says, “Calling JavaScript ‘the glue that holds web pages together’ is short and easy to use, but doesn’t do justice to what’s going on. Glue sets and hardens, but JavaScript is more dynamic than glue. It can create a reaction and make things keep going, like a catalyst.”

2. From a discussion group on Usenet, also p. 4 Beginning JavaScript with DOM Scripting and Ajax by Christian Heilmann, APRESS, 2006.

3. The JavaScript interpreter is normally embedded in a Web browser, but is not restricted to the browser. Servers and other applications can also use the JavaScript interpreter.
