Introducing HTML and JavaScript

  • David R. Brooks
Chapter

Abstract

Chapter 1 provides a very brief introduction to using HTML and JavaScript for creating simple Web pages. It presents examples of how JavaScript interfaces with an HTML document to display some printed output in a Web browser window. The chapter introduces the concept of an HTML document as an object, with certain methods and properties accessible through JavaScript to act on that object. Numerous examples show how to modify the appearance of a document by using HTML tags and their attributes, including as part of a text string passed as a calling argument to JavaScript’swrite()method.
