I have been reading up on jquery & ajax. I also found and am studying the offical jquery website specifically the jquery & ajax sections. However, i'm a little confused.
As an example, there appears to be many versions of autocomplete. I.E.
1. [dyve.net...] 2. [pengoworks.com...] 3. [bassistance.de...] 4. there are about 12 more standalone plugins from various sources... 4. A few in the offical jquery.com website plugins area. 5. One in the jqueryui.com as part of a selectable collection download themes.
I'm confused as to which one of the standalone plugins i can use other than picking one with the highest version number. However, it looks like the one that's included in the jquery ui themed download gives you a complete package for use in a variety of a situations.
My gut feeling is that jquery ui is the way to go.
