FAQ - What questions are off-topic for clj?

FAQ - What questions are off-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.javasciript newsgroup charter is included in

Postings as these are automatically sent once a day. Their goal
is to answer repeated questions, and to offer the content to the
community for continuous evaluation/improvement. The complete
comp.lang.javascript FAQ is at http://www.jibbering.com/faq/.

While that is true, and I agree with it, the charter says differently.

Somewhere (but not there) IMHO it should be indicated that JScript is
for execution locally in Windows, and only a compatible subset is
suitable for WWW pages - or whatever the true facts are.

That is not a Sig, and should therefore not be preceded by a standard
SigSep. A standard Sig should be of no more than four lines. You could
use, say, "===" to indicate a similar separation.

Such posts should include the true name, and as much of the locality or
affiliation as is generally made public, of the poster - in a Sig!.

Okay, "-- " is adapted to "===".

The other remarks from you and Randy apply to the content of the XML
