    JScript is simply what MS calls it's implementation of Javascript.

    VBScript is a whole different language, it's a simplified version of MS's Visual Basic for use in scripting. Avoid VBScript for web pages, as a MS proprietary language it'll lock your web pages to IE, instead you can always do the same thing in Javascript and make it cross-browser.

      Cross-browser? You're kidding, right???

        No, I'm not kidding. I said "avoid VBScript" and "do the same thing with Javascript" implying that whatever it was expected to accomplish with VBScript could be done with Javascript.

          They're also the two most common scripting languages used with ASP, which are obviously cross browser because they work serverside.

              I just meant that JavaScript has it's own cross-browser issues...

                True for both the language itself and for the DOM as supported by the various browsers. But still much better than using VBScript

                  Well some things dont work in IE that work in NS or something.
                  BUT there is ALWAYS a way to make anything dealing with logic work in all browsers.

                  Roy: So your basically saying that VBscript is not worth learning... right?

                  Didnt know its IE only

                    VBScript is worth learning but not for use in web pages. It's really handy on a PC where you need some sort of scripting language that's simple and yet powerful. Of course you could use other scripting languages as well, a good example would be PERL which has non web based origins but most people know it today because of it's use for server side scripting of web pages.
