Description

The ::javascript package provides commands that generate HTML and Java Script code. These commands typically return an HTML string as their result. In particular, they do not output their result to stdout.

The id argument is the suffix of all HTML objects in this megawidget. The leftLabel argument is the text that appears above the left selection box.
