{J,Java}Script improvements/changes in IE 8

P: n/a
I haven't seen anything about updates that might be made to JavaScript
support in IE 8. Does anyone know if it's headed toward 1.7/1.8/2.0?

Microsoft Internet Explorer and other MSHTML-based user agents do not
support Netscape/Mozilla.org JavaScript, they support Microsoft JScript.

You could ask it yourself to the browser :-)

(a same test could be done with 'language="JScript"')

I have not heard anything about new features for the JScript engine.
There will be various DOM enhancements, some bug fixes like fixing the
attribute/property problem on HTML DOM elements, some new features like
a selector API:

http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/ie8wh...?ReleaseId=571
has a link to a document listing what MS has fixed in IE 8 beta in terms
of the DOM.

I think there is a shorter HTML document about that online but can't
find the link to that currently.
