    FAQ Topic - What is ECMAScript?
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    http://www.ecma-international.org/publications/standards/Ecma-262.htm

    ECMAScript is the international standard for javascript. JScript
    3.0 and JavaScript 1.2 (available with version 4. browsers) are
    more or less ECMAScript compliant. In addition ECMA 327 defines
    the Compact Profile of ECMAScript by describing the features from
    ECMA 262 that may be omitted in some resource-constrained
    environments. Note that ECMAScript did not attempt to standardize
    the document object model.

    The current edition is ECMA-262, 3rd Edition. There is some
    support for this edition in JScript 5.0 and JavaScript 1.3.
    JScript 5.5 and JavaScript 1.5, in Netscape 6.1 and later, are
    compliant (JavaScript 1.5 in Netscape 6 missed some methods).
