Tutorial(s) of the Week

Elijah recommends that you watch all of Paul Irish’s jQuery 1.4 Hawtness videos. #1#2#3#4#5#6.

In addition, Elijah also recommends Ralph’s recent jQuery 1.4 Gives Us a New Way to Zebra Stripe blog post.

Even though this example isn’t the most efficient way to do zebra striping, it is a good example that demonstrates the new setter function that is now available in many methods in jQuery.
