Basic Handrail Calculator: A JavaScript Application

While struggling to learn the basics of JavaScript and, perhaps, eventually master the language, I came up with the idea of evaluating what I have learned so far about the very popular web-based programming language.

The simple application below represents the extent of what I have learned so far about the language. Soon, I may be able to write and implement more complex structural design applications on this blog. A simple handrail calculator is a better jump-start.
