    They are two seperate scripting languages. As far as I know, JScript is only supported by Netscape/Mozilla... whereas JavaScript can be used with any browser.

    No. JScript is for IE only.

    JScript is the brand name for IE's implementation of Javascript, while JavaScript is the Mz/NS brand name for their version of Javascript. Latterwise, the subtle difference in spelling is significant. Both JScript and JavaScript have proprietory extensions, though moreso the former. The proper name for standards compliant, non-proprietory JS, is ECMAScript.
