Why is JavaScript code written so it is almost deliberately hard to read?

I’ve been doing some maintenance work on a few sites (all originally developed by different people) and I have noticed a lot of JavaScript code like this: function MM_findObj(n, d) { //v4.01 var p,i,x; if(!d) d=document; if((p=n.indexOf(“?”))>0&&parent.frames.length) { d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);} if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i<d.forms.length;i++) x=d.forms[i][n]; for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++) x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers[i].document); if(!x && d.getElementById) x=d.getElementById(n); return x; } A […]

This works fine, it’s just very sudden though, […]

Draw text along the bezier curve in paper.js

Is it possible to easily draw text along the bezier curve using paper.js? I know it is possible to attach text to a line path and then rotate it, but I am interested specifically in drawing text along the curve.
