I have the oposite opinion. The best solutions usually require mixed language skills, and I think I (and perhaps others here) need to develop those skills.

Here is an example. There are MANY posts on PM about CGI scripts. Most of the books I have read on writing them, including Perl books, seem to agree that any page that wants to be even remotely high performance needs to have some javascript to avoid needless round trips to the server for poor form input and the like. PM has been a very poor place to learn how to write perl scripts that do this, partly because javascript discussion is looked down upon here. JS sites, on the other hand, don't show perl scripts like this because they want to avoid the Perl focus.

I had an application a few months ago where I wanted to use JS in a Perl script to re-sort a short list in a cgi form without requiring a round trip to the server. I needed to have the Perl script write the code to fill the JS array. Being somewhat new to both Perl and JS, I had much difficulty finding examples of how to do this, and felt there should have been much more in Supersearch about writing JS with Perl.

Just my 2 cents.
