There are several web sites already dedicated to promoting (or denouncing) the use of Ajax. Therefore, wherever possible, an attempt will be made to list these resources without bias. Although I fully invite anyone to add to this document, because of intellectual property and copyright reasons, it's just impractical to get the consent of everyone to include their content. Besides, these sites often showcase the very concept that they are attempting to describe.
When a concept is relative to Ajax it should be described here, but the definitive work should be relegated to other Wikibooks or websites where that concept has already been (or should be) fleshed out.
In light of this, there are several concepts with which you should become familiar if you want to work with Ajax. Although, not all of them are expressly required to cut and paste in some sample code, for hacking out your own code, the following are recommended.
- Document Object Model
- Cascading Style Sheets
