How does the following code "ChangeMe()" select strings? First the first string then the second when the client clicks their mouse ? There's no i++ index to tell the JScript is it just a sequential order....

//////////////// CODE /////////////////////////
<HEAD><TITLE>Welcome!</TITLE>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JScript">
function changeMe() {
    document.all.MyHeading.style.color = "green";
    document.all.MyText.innerText = "You can do the most amazing things with the least bit of effort.";
}
</SCRIPT>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; CHARSET=iso8859-1">
<META NAME="MS.LOCALE" CONTENT="EN-US">
<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="all">
</HEAD>
<BODY TOPMARGIN=0 BGPROPERTIES="FIXED" BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" LINK="#000000" VLINK="#808080" ALINK="#000000" onclick="changeMe()">

<H3 ID=MyHeading>Welcome to Dynamic HTML!</H3>
<P ID=MyText>Click anywhere in this document.</P>
</BODY>
////////////// END ////////////////////////

You can observe ID attribute in <H3> and <P> tags. This attribute sets the ID(like a name) for that particular tag. And in changeMe() these tags are referred by saying,

document.all.MyHeading
document.all.MyText

by setting style.color, innerText properties of these tags you can see the required effect.
Great! isn't it?
