JavaScript is a widely accepted, simple programming language that allows a website to be more interactive. Websites can use JavaScript to perform many actions such has calculations, displaying dynamic navigation, and rotating through banner images. By using JavaScript, websites can be proactive by making a better internet experience.

An example of JavaScript use on MOSERS website is form validation. Validation is simply enforcing certain rules on different fields. When presented with a phone number field, JavaScript can alert the user if the phone number format is incorrect or if a value in the field is not a number. This allows the form to be filled out and submitted correctly the first time.

If JavaScript is not enabled, some of MOSERS' website features may not work. In most browsers, JavaScript is enabled through the adjustment in security settings.  Please refer to the Browser Settings page for security setting recommendations for your browser.
