Has anyone created a website/page? Used html and a language like JavaScript in it?

Yes, several over the last ten years, for different purposes (music, photography etc).

But I use a service that provides all the elements for you, you just choose editing and design options and placement, etc. You CAN look up and enter your own HTML coding but I only do that in a limited way. I can't create a website from coding alone, like a professional creator can.

I have made many over the years and currently have about 5-6 domains registered. I used to type out the html from scratch in notepad but lately I have been using an editor program. My most recent one is just a bunch of embedded videos of micro organisms that I have been studying under my microscope.

I founded an online literary magazine in 2010 and used Drupal for the website. I loved it for the first year, but then it got listed in some high circulation magazines and I started receiving way too many submissions to handle alone. I couldn't pay anyone... so I would've had to recruit a team of volunteer editors to keep it going. I didn't really have the time to commit to it at that point in my life, so I closed it. But it was fun while it lasted, and I discovered a lot of talented writers.

I recently created some html/css/javascript/php webpages from scratch for my school homeworks (I study IT) so I guess it counts as "professionally".

But I also have had some blogs and websites as a hobby in my life. Just they were not in 100% made by myself so far. Well, except one, but it was just a simple html junk I made like 10 years ago, fascinated by html lessons in middle school.

This is my latest effort. Replace $ with < and % with> globally.

$DOCTYPE html%
$script language="JavaScript"%
function sample() {
document.bingo.inputArea.value="532.72\n298.01\n97.24\n32.53 4\n174.56\n70.78\n99.28\n193.82"
function mySort(a,b) {return a.amt - b.amt} ;
function Nformat(parm) {
var aparm=(Math.round(parm * 100)) / 100;
var rstring = aparm.toString()
var i = rstring.indexOf(".")
if ( i < 0) {
rstring = rstring + ".00"
i = rstring.indexOf(".")

if (rstring.length - i == 2)
rstring = rstring + "0"
if (parm < 10.00)
rstring = " " + rstring;
return rstring
function resultFunction(amt,string) {
this.amt = Math.abs(amt); // Holds the absolute value of the difference (for sorting)
this.sign=(amt < 0)? "-" : " "; // sign of difference
this.text = string; // just built string
// One is added to each multiplier (number or occurances). If an item can occur 2 times; ZERO, one, and two
// must be considered.
function candidateFunction(amt,mult){
this.amt = amt;
this.mult = mult + 1;
this.try=0; // Will be manipulated later, but must start at zero.
function calculate() {
var i, j, carry, lines, target, asum, mult, amt, maxTry=1, result = new(Array), candidates=new(Array), results= new(Array);
var buildlines=" Diff List of items Considering ", oneline="";

for (i=1; i < lines.length; i++) {
result = lines[i].match(/ *(\d+\.?\d*)\D?/)
if (result == null)
amt = parseFloat(result[1]);
result = lines[i].match(/ *[^ ]+ +(\d+)/)
if (result == null)
candidates[i-1] = new candidateFunction(amt,mult); } //Function will add 1 to multiplier
// alert("Length of candidates: " + candidates.length);
for (i=0; i < candidates.length; i++)
maxTry *= candidates[i].mult;

for (i=2; i< maxTry;i++) { // Omitting nothing and everything

var oneMult = candidates[j].try * candidates[j].amt;
if (asum) // If something on line already
oneline+= " + "; // append a + sign
asum += oneMult;
oneline+=Nformat(candidates[j].amt); // Will append * and # times if over 1.
oneline+= (candidates[j].try > 1)? " * " + candidates[j].try : ""; } }
results[i-2] = new resultFunction(asum - target, oneline) } // Finished this set, add to results
buildlines+= (maxTry - 2) + " arrangements\n"; //Less nothing and everything tries

document.bingo.outputArea.value = buildlines;
$body onLoad="document.bingo.outputArea.value=''"%
$form name="bingo"%
$tr%$th colspan=3%Enter target sum on first row. On other rows give candidate amounts and (optional) a space and multiplier (example 20.00 4 for four twenty dollar checks).$/th%$/tr%

The name comes from a routine on the program Hee-Haw ("four gazenda 20 five times"), but this page shows which items go into a specified sum. For example, you have written checks totaling
about 800.00 but your bank balence only goes down by 310.25. To determine which checks have cleared, put 310.25 on the first line and the amounts of the outstanding checks on the next lines.
If you have more than one check for the same amount, this page needs the amount, a space, and count of that size check. This page will run all combinations of cashed and uncashed
checks on your list and give you the closest results first (Diff equal or near zero).$br%$br%
User assumes all risks such as more than one correct answer, other fees, mis-entered numbers, and/or extra/missing numbers.$br%$br%
Sample assumes checks totaling 532.72 have been cashed from six unique amounts and four checks of 32.53 each. We don't consider none or all.$br%$br%
If a Difference is negative, the sum of the items is too small; if more than zero, too much.
if (Date.parse(document.lastModified) != 0)
document.write('$p%$hr%$small%$i%Last modified: '
+ document.lastModified
+ '$/i%$/small%$br%');

Been a while since I did so... 2004-ish or so. Created the website of the band I was in. The site was mostly flash with some javascript elements.

I've created a site before. At the moment I'm doing a course to learn him, css and javascript

We become what we think about; since everything in the beginning is just an idea.

Destruction and creation are 2 sides of the same coin.

I have a hiking blog. I've installed a couple of stat counters because I really like stats and maps.

I've created a couple of personal web pages for fun, a volunteer one for a church, and a professional one. But my skills are out-of-date, which in this business happens if two months pass where you aren't actively working and not attending skills updates. Ok, so that's an exaggeration, but I wouldn't try to do any of this today. Although.... there is that genealogy project....

Used to have a webpage on Geocities i filled with random crap then i hosted my own webserver for a while, and i also used to code ASP, PHP and Java professionally (like with JS, XHTML and CSS and stuff) and had training on Tridion CMS which is an overly expensive CMS for large corporations.

So yeah - both.

I have, both with tools to create elements and from raw code.
I don't mind HTML but CSS throw me. I've had attempts at them but they just don't seem to work.
