    Question Microsoft - Java

    Hi,

    Can any talk about what effect the Microsoft ruling http://www.lexisone.com/news/ap/ap062703c.html might have on future versions of IE allowing users to view pages with javascript?

    I know it's not java and I think the ruling was talking about using Java for the operating system - I don't really get how it's all related...


    Thanks

    Toni

    Javascript actually has nothing whatsoever to do with Java, except it's name.

    No effect on javascript. They have nothing in common except for the four letters j-a-v-a

    No, it's not. Javascript is Netscape's derivation of ECMAscript.
