The Obtuse Script

Have you ever wrestled with an obtuse JavaScript script?

You've got a crystal clear example from codeidiot.com but when you implement it - nothing, nada, a non-rising souffle. You go back, check everything, and it still doesn't work.

Here's a secret - JavaScript is not really Java, but that's OK. It was originally called Mocha, then Mochachino, then Super-Frapalicous-Java-Chip-Explosion (also exploding your waistline), then eventually JavaScript. For web 2.0, it was lumped into the same context as AJAX, meaning anything dynamic, kind of like repainting the old Gran Torino. The trademark is owned by Sun Microsystems.
