HTML and Javascript Basics

I've been reading through "HTML and Javascript Basics" by Karl Barksdale, which is an easy-to-follow intro to Javascript.  Feels like a high school text, but I'm fine with that, as the examples are simple and straight-forward for dummies like me.

I've looked through a number of programming books, and I appreciate the books that include details of the code samples to incorporate.  Quite a few books seem to take the shortcut of either referring you to code on the CD-ROM (or on a website) when often, I like to just prop open a book and work/code directly from that, instead of having to bounce around all over the place looking for code samples.  Also, having the code in a book makes it easier to annotate comments and notes while going through it as well.

Anyhow, I've been experimenting with some of the links on the Dad's Toenail pages, including some modifications to the navbar on the side.  Nothing fancy here: in fact, the whole point of this blog is just to have a repository where I can document code that I work on.

I do enough hobby coding that I want to start documenting my notes during this progress, and blogger is the perfect place to host these thoughts.  More to come.
