My general impression is not too positive. I did not find its usage very readable nor maintainable. Library documentation was also sparse.

    The purpose of the article, as I tried to make clear in the introduction, is not to provide 'yet another javascript library'. Rather, it is to demonstrate how some of the functions within a typical toolkit are implemented, so that you can create your own or improve on existing ones. I've tried to keep the examples short and simple, although I am sure there are better ways they could be implemented if re-usability was the goal.

    I am not sure what 'Prototype library' is but just to be clear, the examples here are completely made up for this article and are not based on any specific existing library (although they may be based on other examples found on the 'net).

    Check http://www.prototypejs.org for very complete documentation of the Prototype library. Also, the book "Prototype and Scriptaculous in Action" cover the library in extensive detail.
