Active Scripting

Definition: Active Scripting is a term used to define the various script programs that can run within and work with HTML to interact with the user and create a dynamic web page. By itself, HTML is static and can simply present text and graphics. Using active scripting languages such as JavaScript or VBScript the developer can accomplish things like updating the date and time displayed on the page, popping information up in a separate window or creating scrolling text with important information to go across the screen.
