    There is no reason why you would use VB over JS, since VB is only supported in IE.

    JavaScript = Scripting language of choice - the way to go!

    VBScript sux big time... I even used to write my ASP code (back in the day) in JavaScript. I was the only one, and people used to look down on me, but I didn't care... "just smile and waive boys, just smile and waive!"

    Javascript is more functional and dynamic than VB, somemore if you learn the basic javascript you might be able to use it in many case besides browsers scripting, e.g. desktop widget, pdf programming.
