You may be aware that the Department of Homeland Security recently warned computer users to disable Java in Web browsers. It’s important to remember that Java and JavaScript are not the same thing:

The JavaScript programming language, developed by Netscape, Inc., is not part of the Java platform.
JavaScript, does not create applets or stand-alone applications. In its most common form today, JavaScript resides inside HTML documents, and can provide levels of interactivity to web pages that are not achievable with simple HTML.

Our site makes extensive use of JavaScript, and may not function properly if you have disabled JavaScript in your Web browser. The site should function normally with Java disabled, however. If any part of our site appears to be broken, please check to make sure you have JavaScript enabled.
