    FAQ Topic - What questions are on-topic for CLJ?
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    The comp.lang.javascript newsgroup deals with ECMAScript
    languages, so any questions about JavaScript or JScript are
    welcome. However, the majority of questions sent to this group
    relates to javascript in a web browser. If you are experiencing
    issues with a particular browser, or the host is not a browser
    at all, please make this information clear.

    Javascript and Java are two completely different languages.
    Java questions should be asked in one of the comp.lang.java.*
    newsgroups; they are not appropriate for CLJ (as Java and
    javascript are distinct programming languages with only
    superficial similarities due to sharing a C-like syntax and
    some of the characters in their names).

    Questions dealing with other scripting languages, such as
    VBScript, PerlScript or CGI scripting are also off-topic,
    as are HTML-only or CSS-only questions.

    Questions that are specific to Microsoft's JScript may also
    be appropriately asked at:
    microsoft.public.scripting.jscript

    The comp.lang.javascript newsgroup charter is included in
