I would highly recommend learning JavaScript.

The downside, of course, is only the latest browsers can access it.

There's another downside. A lot folks, myself included, disable JavaScript
in their browsers. Call me paranoid, but it's just too easy for an
unscrupulous webmaster to abuse.

I know of several companies who insist that all browsers have JS (and even
Java support) disabled.

So, if you're prepared to exclude a lot of corporate users go ahead and use
JS. So far, it doesn't seem that I've missed much of anything except cutesy
time-wasting graphics without it. Good web design doesn't need JS.

Have fun,
