New site for Prototype

Prototype is a Javascript library that is very useful, very powerful, and until now, very not-well-documented. It used to be that the Prototype library web page merely had a downloadable .js file with absolutely no reference material to indicate what it did or how to use it (a service graciously provided by others who worked with the library). Thankfully, though, the Prototype Javascript Library has a web site that includes documentation, and it looks like they're doing it right, with both detailed API documentation as well as a "tips and tutorials" approach and a blog to highlight various features and uses. This ought to make Prototype more accessible to the typical Javascript user, thankfully. (Via Particletree.)
