 +====== javascript ======
  
 +javascript is a programming language solely used for client side (i.e. browser) scripting in the context of CMSimple_XH.
 +
 +Actually there doesn'​t exist a programming language with the name "​javascript"​. The language is standardized as ECMAScript, and the names of implementations in various browsers are different (JavaScript in Netscape/​Mozilla,​ JScript in IE). As the first implementations were done by Netscape who finally called the language JavaScript, this name is commonly used. To avoid ambiguities the name "​javascript"​ (sometimes abbreviated as JS) is used throughout the Wiki, when no particular implementation is referred to.
 +
 +Note, that the programming language Java is a completely different language (besides using a somewhat similar syntax).
