i was wondering if anyone could reccomend books or websites, preferably books that teach Javascript or CSS. I am making a widget that is a word game but the graphics arent coming along and the randomization isn't quite complete. i'm also having some problems with the layout of the widget.Well, when <if> i finish it i'll let ya know cos this game is really fun. the game is called Boggle, but im probably gonna call it WiggleWord

thanks for any help

I have to admit to being biased, but JavaScript for the WWW: Visual QuickStart Guide, 5th edition (by Tom Negrino and myself) has worked for a lot of people. All the scripts from the book are online there, free for the taking.

I'll add my 'unbiased' recommendation for it.
It is a well put together little tome. Very usefull!
On my second copy (ie revised ed).

Did your hunch involve this article or this article? Or maybe this forum post here? Very Happy

Yep, that's me.

BTW, I've got two more articles on widgets in the pipeline at Macworld (one turned in and one in progress), so if anyone is reading this who's doing something very cool, please let me know. And suggestions for improving my Dashboard resource page are always welcome.
