"Client-side Javascript" is a simple referrence to the problem,
but if you take it as a complete description of the problem, that
can lead to misunderstanding what the issue is.

The problem with Javascript is in the form of its usual usage
scenario: the browser gets it in a web page sent by some other machine
and runs it directly from that page.  That's the way "client-side
Javascript" usually works.

If someone takes a verbal shortcut and refers to that problem by
saying "client-side Javascript", would you please keep in mind that
the real issue is what I stated in the paragraph above?
