[uf-discuss] Tutorial on AHAH (such a cool technology!)

Neat stuff. I thought it was pretty good, but take some issue with the

  <a href="javascript:ahah('Waldorf-Astoria-Photo.html','Photo');">photo</a>

The best practice is to wire the event up, and to use a button when
the element is not truly a link.

Something more like:

  <button onclick="ahah('Waldorf-Astoria-Photo.html','Photo');">photo</button>

or even better:

<button id="photo_changer" type="button" >photo</button>
<script type="text/javascript>
// must be done either after onload fires or after the element appears
in the DOM...
// find the element.
photoButton = document.getElementById('photo_changer');
// wire up the event.
photoButton.onclick = function () {
