Microsoft JScript site is down

P: n/a
VK
Something *big* is cooking: the entire Microsoft JScript section is
down:
<http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/script56/html/js56jslrfjscriptlanguagereference.asp>

Separate pages on this section were appearing / disappearing over the
last week (like XMLHttpRequest article appeared / got unavailable /
disappeared).

Now the entire site section is locked (for a complete rewriting?). Do
not recall anything like that since IE 3.0

It is back-up now, as far as I can tell.

It seems to be a problem with their URL. If you go into the main MSDN
page and navigate through the index, you can get to JScript quite
easily: I have just done that now, and there are no problems.
However, if you try to create a direct link, then there seems to be a
problem.

I think Microsoft have changed something in the implementation of their
site which is causing the problem, and preventing deep linking.

Sorry, ignore all that URL rubblish I am spouting. Just me not cutting
and pasting properly:

<URL:http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/script56/html/4af19f1b-1e9b-4116-beb6-6cde5d56947b.asp>

Without scripting enabled and without frames, this will get you a nice
navigation menu ... and nothing more. I recommend to use the URL of the
content redirected to instead:

<URL:http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/script56/html/4af19f1b-1e9b-4116-beb6-6cde5d56947b.asp>

If scripting and frames are supported, the frameset is restored anyway.

Of course. Thank you.
