    HTML defines document structure and semantics. CSS provides presentation for that structure. JavaScript provides behaviour and user interactivity beyond what is provided by the HTML semantics.

    If you want to code web pages with more than the crude default behaviour of HTML, then you need to use JavaScript.






    Outside of web design, JavaScript also has uses in scripting for Mozilla-the-platform, scripting Flash (ActionScript is like a glorified JavaScript), scripting Opera Widgets and Yahoo! Widgets, scripting forms in Adobe's PDF, scripting web servers (JScript in ASP, JScript.NET in ASP.NET, Rhino in Cocoon etc), and it can also be used for shell scripting (JScript in WSH, Mozilla SpiderMonkey in JSShell etc) .
