Client-side Scripting

Class of computer programming on the web which is executed client-side, by the user’s web browser, instead of server-side (on the web server). This type of computer programming is an important part of the Dynamic HTML (DHTML) concept, enabling web pages to be scripted; that is, to have different and changing content depending on user input, environmental conditions (such as the time of day), or other variables. See also Server-side Scripting.

Thanks Gustavo,

There are indeed a lot of links to update due to the repository change. A search with "http://developer.joomla.org" at Help Site return a worthy number of results. There are also some mix up between "http://developer.joomla.org" and "http://dev.joomla.org".

Anyway, these days the 1.5 Glossary is under review. The rest of entries is a matter to consider.
