Java
The wait for Java hype to turn into reality is over. For various reasons, mostly having to do with speed, we still need to wait for fat pipe deployment for total implimentation. Java is ready to come into really widespread use. More web sites are not afraid to use a Java applet even on their front page. Java is virtually ready for prime time for two main reasons, speed and standardization. You've heard so much about Java. See some of the many things it can do. It's time to learn how to put it into use for your web site. Graphics, navigation, content enhancement, 3D, interactivity. Copy and paste simplicity.

Javascript

Home on the Web
to the tune of "Home on the Range"
Lyrics by Peggy Ben-Fay Hu
VERSE:
Oh give me a site
where the links all work right --
one that doesn't take too long to load --
where the text can be seen
on my 13-inch screen --
one that offers a "no-Java" mode.
REFRAIN:
Home, home on the Web
on my 486 IBM.
Please take pity on me --
I'm still on Netscape 3
with a 14.4-speed modem!
VERSE:
Though your video files
give your pages some style
I can't read them upon my PC;
Massive graphics and sound
crash my system, I've found,
so please put in some "alt" tags for me!
REFRAIN:
Home, home on the Web
on my 486 IBM
Please take pity on me --
I'm still on Netscape 3
with a 14.4-speed modem!
VERSE:
Please don't ask me to "chat"
with your favorite cat;
I don't have an IRC code.
And don't ask me to buy
games for Win 95 --
My PC is way too darn old!
REFRAIN:
Home, home on the Web
on my 486 IBM
Please take pity on me --
I'm still on Netscape 3
with a 14.4-speed modem!
