script.aculo.us is based on the prototype library
(prototype.conio.net), it is designed in a nice (looks slightly like
Ruby/Smalltalk) and extensible way. The conditional code is (mostly)
at one single place where the prototypes are built, so you don't have
to care in your code. The prototype for IE gets slightly different
code, than the ones of FireFox or Safari. There are a lot of
regression tests included that can be run on the different target
