Javascript Syntax

JavaScript can be implemented using JavaScript statements that are placed within the script HTML tags in a web page. You can place the script tags, containing your JavaScript, anywhere, but it is recommended that you should keep it within the head tags.

Case Sensitivity

JavaScript is case sensitive. It is common to start the name of a constructor with a capitalised letter, and the name of a function with a lower-case letter.

Whitespace and Semicolons

whitespace in JavaScript source can directly impact semantics. JavaScript allows you to omit this semicolon if each of your statements are placed on a separate line.

Comments in JavaScript

Any text between a // and the end of a line is treated as a comment and is ignored by JavaScript.

Any text between the characters /* and */ is treated as a comment. This may span multiple lines.

JavaScript also recognizes the HTML comment opening sequence <!–. JavaScript treats this as a single-line comment.// comment.

The HTML comment closing sequence –> is not recognized by JavaScript so it should be written as //–>.
