    IE and JavaScript objects

    I really like the JavaScript API from Netscape.

    Does Microsoft have one for JavaScript? Specifically say I want to look up the Date object. Can you find information on it?

    This is driving me crazy!

    Microsoft implemented its proprietary JScript based off of ECMAScript, which is what JavaScript is based on as well.

    What I am trying to say is that even though the name is different, it is essentially the same.

    Now, for what you asked for.

    JScript Language Reference

    2) I highly suggest getting a JavaScript reference book such as the O' Reilly JavaScript Reference . It will save you much time in the future.

    Depending on the breadth of your skills you could always buy a total reference book. The best I have found to date is Webmaster in a nutshell. For a full review try

    Thanks moospot. I had not seen the DHTML references before and not the JScript ones. I had realized that IE used JScript in the past but I thought they had given up the name JScript for JavaScript. I guess I was wrong there.

    One thing I find confusing is doesn't IE use JScript for it's DHTML. When you want to manipulate something using DHTML you are essentially using JScript to manipulate CSS and the HTML. If this is true, then why didn't they just say it in the DHTML reference or at least point to the JScript reference? Damn confusing!

    I am using JScript when using DHTML in IE right?

    Officially you are using Javascript for IE and jscript for Netscape. But for reference most people just refer to it as javascript. Which is a part of DHTML.

    Javascript + CSS + XHTML = DHTML
