The Third Degree
The last couple years have been occupied with a popular movement towards separation of presentation and structure with CSS/XHTML. I think most of us applaud this movement but now it’s time to push for a third degree of separation, Functionality. Since Prototype is effortless to implement we can begin to sprinkle it everywhere and before long our documents become difficult to read.
I highly recommend this method for those of you getting your kicks with Ajax. Ajax is great but if you don’t have a backup plan your screwed and having this third degree ensures a graceful degrade.
