hi all,

i have found strange usage of "$" in place of "document.getElementbyID" method.
ex--
document.getElementById("sel_sortmethod") instead
$("sel_sortmethod")

what does it signify?

I guess it is a function defined in a js library, for instance

I saw this kinda library aplied for Wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki)
