Foreword

jQuery has taken the web development community by storm. It has done this by building an API that is approachable for designers and new developers while simultaneously providing the power and extensibility desired by the most advanced and experienced developers. jQuery is easy to learn, easy to extend, and paves over browser differences, making it the go-to choice for millions of developers.

jQuery UI takes the same philosophies used to build jQuery and applies them to various aspects of UI creation. Building elegant interfaces with powerful, customizable widgets should be just as easy as showing and hiding elements. jQuery UI delivers on this promise while addressing often ignored issues such as accessibility and extensibility.
