The next section was on more advanced topics. There was a chapter on runtime code evaluation that I thought was really interesting. It compared various ways to pull in new code and execute it at runtime. There was actually an entire chapter on the “with“ statement. It was not a defense of the controversial statement, but more of a primer on how to interact with it in existing legacy codebases. The section closed with an introduction to dealing with cross-browser issues without resorting to browser sniffing techniques.
The final section of the book covered DOM events, working with DOM elements and CSS selector engines. All of the topics were covered with browser nuances in mind.
