Default ready vs. ready

Hey Richard, and all, here's basic beginner Question:
On page 31 you refer to the jquery 'ready' event, and then a few pages later, pg 36, ex 2-1, you name a method in the script 'ready'... I understand these to be two different methods, and am wondering if it isn't a little confusing... how do you keep the concepts separate?
Thanks for your help!

You don't have to use the same name if you find it confusing, another common name for that function is "init()". Use whatever makes sense to you. I use "Ready()" because I think that's the best semantic description of what's happening, e.g., the document is ready, now that the document is ready, execute the corresponding "Ready()" function of my object to set things up in this document. I can see how a newcomer might look at that and ask why there are two functions named "ready"? Experienced developers will easily figure out what's going on.
