I've never seen something I needed on a web page which was done
with Java or JavaScript which either couldn't be done with straight

and run if I wanted. I personally have no use for Java or JavaScript,
as even if the code is not malign, it is typically written by non-
expert programmers, and often has defects with unintended side
