So I get the principal of Javascipt, and I know how to implement it and the logic/syntax behind it, but what I get confused about is using other peoples' work/libraries, e.g. jquery.
I have a few ideas in the works for a webpage, but with dynamic content.
And I really don't want Flash since it's even more content to load, rather than a script.
What I have in mind is simple things like content loading onto the page with a fade in effect (Image Gallery)
and other things like when you hover your mouse over a DIV the width of it becomes longer on a certain side, right or left, but as a smooth effect, rather than like BOOM, it's wider, like a simple CSS rollover.
These are just some ideas what I'm after the answer to, but in the long run I'm after a more substantial understanding of how to use other people's libraries, as they appear to have a slightly different way of implementing their code, and I don't know what part of their code to use with what I'm like wanting...
