Where's typof() ?

When you hit the PDF button, it chops off the bottom of the page and has a second page with your face and half of the credits on it. comical fail. Thought you should know.

Thnx...dave

Wheres alert() and prompt()?

The event handlers should be all lowercase.

these PDF make easy to create web site ,present and validate as well.
there is no need to open any book or google for any tag.
Thnk you dave.

This is a messed up ripoff of other quality quick references, with your mug slapped in it and a shameless plug to your site.

I published the first version of this cheat sheet on ILoveJackDaniels.com in 2005. I don't think there were many others around then, if any. It's been through a few changes in that time, of course, but it's basically the same.

Thanks Dave, with all the criticism and few thanks its a wonder people try to help each other. Good work.

very good

Good starting point but still has a few errors (as of Jan 2016) :-/

1. Dates are not alphabetized. i.e. getYear, getSeconds, are out of order
2. Dates functions are missing parenthesis. i.e. getYear()
3. Missing Date.now()
