Re: Java f'in script !

Client side scripting has its place, but to use some of your examples, I could do without intelligent forms. I don't need someone to store my address on my computer in a format that only works with their site. I can use one of the many browser add-ons for automatic filling of forms should I get tired of entering my address. I also don't need overactive warnings every time I already know that, that tell me that my phone number is not a valid number because I haven't finished typing it yet or that a person can't live at an address where the country says "please select". This kind of thing could be done with HTML5 form things that allow simple conditions to be sent to the browser, without requiring as much attention to client-side parsers and incidentally annoying me less.
