  • I don't like method chaining either, but you can program jQuery without it. It's so much easier to use than YUI. I think you should give it a chance.

      The phraseology I used implied it was just the chaining that I don't like (true) but the other thing which put me off was the sheer quantity of code (in the demos, admittedly) to achieve results.

      It reminded me of assembler (shudder) and Tk (mega-shudder). A lot of code for a small effect.

      I, like you, and like everyone, either are forced to use a particular package in a specific situation, or choose something we like. And this I don't like.

      OK. I've had another looks at jQuery's docs, specifically the Tab interface.

      I find the examples /very/ terse and fragmentary, so the YUI docs win hands-down.
