Javascript

Javascript isn't as painful as I figured it would be. It's quite easy to pick up details from references and idioms from other peoples' code, which is certainly a testament to the simplicity of the language.

After some picking around with the W3C DOM implementation for Javascript, I'm starting to look at JSON as an alternative. At the very least, it seems easier to debug and to dump data structures out of. There's probably just something I don't get about the DOM that is making it so annoying, but hopefully I'll find it with a fresh set of eyes after checking out an alternative or two.
