Thanks alphadesk, this is definitely one to bookmark. I tried to go to DevEdge Home (http://developer.netscape.com/index.html) earlier but kept getting some funky results (my browser kept bouncing; trying to refresh over and over). Weird.

Call me a heretic, but I think online programming manuals are good only for quick reference when you need to look up a specific piece of information. If you're trying to learn a new language or really expand your skills, nothing beats having a real book on your desk that you can sit down with and follow along through the lessons.

I agree that nothing beats having a good book to thumb through for learning and as a reference. What I like about online material is the ability to quickly search for key words, and to see examples of how many different programmers implement their programs. You get to see different styles (some good, some bad), and can see examples of how to tackle specific problems your hardcopy book may not have covered. Plus, I work/play around online at several different locations and I couldn’t imagine lugging around the different reference manuals I use just to answer an easy question about some function. Now if I could figure out how to read long text material from the screen for more than 15 minutes without my eyes blurring I would be all right.
