Hello,

I'm trying to learn Javascript and have gone through the entire Javascript tutorial on W3Schools but somehow I found the site inadequate.

I couldn't understand much of the coding when I was looking at the OmniSlide menu code on DD. To give you an instance, in the following snippet :


function truebody(){
return (document.compatMode && document.compatMode!="BackCompat")? document.documentElement : document.body;
}

I didn't know what compatMode was all about and also couldn't figure out what the function actually did.


So could someone suggest a good Javascript book or tutorial or any other source where I could get even the minute details of advanced Javascript coding ?
