Pretty easy so far. Worked through the example. In the past I've used Google documents to save and edit things in phBB code, doing it all by hand. Easy enough at the small scale, but easy to lose [/end] code, or have an extra one lying about that stops it prematurely. Can see how this would be useful if doing something more involved.

Already jumped ahead and wrote one to do italic and used that to call up the cell that hand the bold text in it.

I just have one thing to say. Javascript? Easy? Are we sure we are talking about the same DEVILS PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE?

(Seriously though, I get what you're saying and the actual function writing is easy enough, but when there's like dozens of frameworks just to make sure your code is actually easy to write... :roll: )

And I see how this could potentially be useful- Looking forward to more.

As someone who has just started learning JavaScript and has only a little experience with spreadsheets I think the tutorial is well-organized and easily to follow (and I learned more about how functions work from you than from the source I was using although, considering it was flagrantly violating all sorts of W3C rules...probably not the most reliable teacher...).

I look forward to future installments!
