HTML: HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language. HTML is a standard language that contains a set of conventions (called tags) that you can use to specify the appearance you want for each particular part of your Web document. HTML is supported by all Web browsers, including Navigator and Internet Explorer. All Web pages are written in HTML; some Web pages also include HTML extensions, like the <SCRIPT> .. .
< /SCRI PT> tag pair that enables JavaScript script embedding.
index: An index is a number assigned to each element in an array. The first index of an array always starts with 0 and then increases by one, like so: 0, 1,2, 3, 4, and so on.
inheritance: Inheritance is the ability of an object-oriented programming language to create an object by substantially reusing another object’s characteristics — for example, the ability to create an object called Part-Time Employee from an object called Employee. JavaScript doesn’t support inheritance, so it’s not considered a true object-oriented language (it is considered an object-based language, though).
Internet: The Internet, or ’Net, is a worldwide computer network made up of hardware, software, and communications lines. Different protocols, like http and news, allow users to peek at content on the Internet in different ways.
interpreter: An interpreter is a piece of software that transforms human-readable source code into machine-readable language. Every JavaScript-enabled Web browser contains a JavaScript interpreter.
Java: Java is an object-oriented programming language designed by Sun Microsystems. Java is similar in some ways to C++. Java was specifically designed to be the ultimate Internet application development language, so it includes built-in features like crossplatform capability and security. You can integrate Java applets into Web pages and, with Netscape Navigator 3.0, you can integrate Java applets into JavaScript scripts.
JavaScript: JavaScript is a С-like scripting language developed by Netscape Communications. JavaScript, implemented as an extension to HTML, makes it possible for developers to create Web pages that respond to user events and perform client-side calculations. At the time of this writing, Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer are the only generally available browsers that support JavaScript.
LiveConnect: Implemented in Netscape Navigator Version 3.0, LiveConnect is the

technology from Netscape Communications that allows JavaScript statements to interact directly with Java applets and Netscape plug-ins.
Live Wire: LiveWire (and LiveWire Pro) are server-side integrated tool suites from Netscape Communications that allow users to create, maintain, and manage Web sites. Both LiveWire and LiveWire Pro support compiled versions of JavaScript.
method: A method, sometimes called a member function, is a function that is defined specifically for a particular object and operates only on that object’s data. Different objects can have methods of the same name (for example, document. cl ose() and wi ndow. cl ose()).
MIME type: MIME stands for Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions. MIME types are standard types of multimedia files that can be passed around the Web. Some examples are audi o/x-wav, i mage/ jpeg, and text/html.
object: In object-oriented programming languages (or object-based languages like JavaScript), an object is a complex data type that represents a real-world person, place, thing, or idea. Objects can be built-in, like the button, check box, document, radio, and window objects, or they can be custom-defined by a programmer/ JavaScript author.
polymorphism: Polymorphism, along with inheritance, is one of the defining characteristics of object-oriented languages. Polymorphism is the ability to call a method with the same name on multiple objects (for example, ose()and wi ndow. cl ose() , in which the с 1 о s e () method can be called on both the document and the wi ndow objects). JavaScript supports polymorphism.
property: A property is a descriptive characteristic of an object. For example, a С a t object might logically contain name, si ze, col or, age, and hadShots properties, with corresponding property values of "Inky", "smal 1", "Ы ack", “3 months", " у e s ". All object properties are accessible via JavaScript statements.
public: The public keyword is used in some object-oriented languages to indicate that a particular property or method defined in one class can be called from another class. Public properties and methods of Java applets can be invoked directly from JavaScript statements with Netscape Navigator 3.0.
script: A script is a simple, interpreted computer program that falls about midway on the continuum between command line directives and full-blown programming languages. JavaScript is an example of a scripting language.
server: A server is a software application that answers requests (usually for data) from other software applications, called clients. Clients and servers are typically (but not always) on different machines. See client and Web server.
