Christian Heilmann has been busy making lists; six JavaScript features we do not need any longer and DOM scripting health and safety tips. There’s a lot of bad practice out there. Readers of this weblog, being the sensitive and handsome people that you are, will no doubt know about these bad practices and be assiduously avoiding them. (If not, I can, er, recommend SitePoint’s DHTML Utopia, written by, er, me. Heh. :)) I’d be interested to hear firstly what you think are the current “bad practices” which should be abolished as soon as possible, what you think they should be replaced with, and what obstacles you’re finding (or falling over) in your respective quests to both implement modern DOM scripting and to update all that old stuff to work the right way. Follow up with your comments!
