  Recommendations for Modifications to the ECMAScript Language Specification
ECMAScript has powerful reflection capabilities, but there is a blind spot with respect to functions.
The ECMAScript Specification is unnecessarily restrictive in the limitations on the use of reserved words.
The ECMAScript Specification does not allow the use of reserved words as identifiers in the key/value pairs in the literal object notation.

  ECMAScript
ECMAScript language specification defines a minimum criterias for scripting language and it is allowed to include extensions to the conforming implementation.
ECMAScript syntax is relaxed to enable it to serve as an easy-to-use scripting language.
In ECMAScript, the state and methods are carried by objects, and structure, behavior, and state are all inherited.

 VRML97, ISO/IEC 14772-1:1997 -- Annex C, ECMAScript Scripting Reference
ECMAScript is a general purpose, cross-platform programming language that can be used with ISO/IEC 14772 to provide scripting of events, objects, and actions.
The function's name is the same as the eventIn and is passed two arguments, the event value and its timestamp (see C.4.2, Parameter passing and the eventIn function).
Since ECMAScript is an untyped language it has no language constructs to describe the types of parameters passed to, or values returned from, functions.

 Ecma Script
ECMAScript is the only standard scripting language on the Web; it is based on the ECMA-262 specification, which outlines an ObjectOriented ProgrammingLanguage for performing computations and manipulating objects within a host environment, such as the browser.
Although that is by far the most common use for the language, it is incorrect to assume that the DocumentObjectModel is somehow tied to the standard.
The ECMAScript 4 standard appears to be turning the language into a cross between JavaLanguage and PythonLanguage, mostly Java.

 Cover Pages: Ecma International Approves ECMAScript for XML (E4X) Specification.
ECMAScript Task Group has "completed several independent implementations to validate the specification and is already working on the next version of E4X, which will include support for the XML schema language and other type systems.
It reuses familiar ECMAScript operators for creating, navigating and manipulating XML, such that anyone who has used ECMAScript is able to start using XML with little or no additional knowledge.
ECMAScript (ECMA-262 / ISO/IEC 16262) is one of the most widely used programming languages." E4X "adds native XML datatypes to the ECMAScript language, extends the semantics of familiar ECMAScript operators for manipulating XML objects and adds a small set of new operators for common XML operations, such as searching and filtering.

ECMAScript can be used in VoiceXML documents for client-side processing, for example, to validate user input, without requiring access to the server.
ECMAScript objects are used as the parameter passing mechanism for elements such as and , while the 'expr' and the 'cond' attributes reference ECMAScript expressions.
Although ECMAScript can be used within a VoiceXML document in the ways mentioned, there are some characters that need to be escaped in order to conform to the rules of XML.

 What is ECMAScript? - a definition from Whatis.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
- ECMAScript is a standard script language, developed with the cooperation of Netscape and Microsoft and mainly derived from Netscape's JavaScript, the widely-used scripting language that is used in Web pages to affect how they look or behave for the user.
ECMAScript is object-oriented and conceived as a core language to which can be added the objects of any specific domain or context such as the idea of a "document." (for example, the World Wide Web Consortium's Document Object Model).
ECMAScript together with the Document Object Model corresponds closely to the current implementations of JavaScript and JScript.

 Stick to the ECMAscript   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
ECMAscript (better known to most people as JavaScript) has a particularly interesting history in that it started out as an anti-standard.
That is, ECMAScript is essentially the same language as both JavaScript and JScript languages, the competing languages used respectively by Netscape and Microsoft.
While browsers are the most likely platform to specifically refer to the ECMAScript standard, or to identify a particular version, they are not the only technology to support the standard.

 Unicode in ECMAScript Edition 4
Since ECMAScript edition 3 was published, the Unicode standard has added features, fixed bugs, and improved specifications.
ECMAScript already lists several Unicode and ISO 6429 controls that are commonly used as line break characters, except for U+0085 Next Line.
ECMAScript permits \uhhhh for characters where \xhh would suffice, and other standards do not appear to have such restrictions.

ECMAScript est une tentative de normalisation du noyau du langage : sa syntaxe, ses mots-clés et ses composants natifs.
ECMAScript possède enfin les traditionnels opérateurs unaires d'incrémentation, « 
De plus ECMAScript ne peut pas se résumer qu'à son noyau, et pour créer des scripts vraiment utiles, il faudra utiliser d'autres technologies qui étendent le noyau, comme principalement le DOM.

It will be formally defined in terms of Standard ML of New Jersey, a member of the ML programming language family[9]; ML offers strong support for many desired or proposed features such as tail recursion.
In this example, the variable test is declared and given an initialization value of "hi" (a string).
Because ECMAScript is dynamically typed, the interpreter automatically creates a string value for test without any explicit type declaration.

 ESP: EcmaScript Pages
ESP (EcmaScript Pages) is a servlet add-on that allows you to write servlets directly in JavaScript and Html while retaining all the power of the Java language and the servlet object model.
Of course, EcmaScript is also completely compatible with JavaScript: they're actually the same language, except for the so-called "navigator extensions".
A special EcmaScript file (defined by the optional initScript servlet parameter) is loaded at startup and its contents are made accessible to all subsequent pages.

 O'Reilly Network -- JavaScript: How Did We Get Here?
Standardization was begun in conjunction with ECMA in November 1996 and adopted in June 1997 by ECMA and by ISO in April 1998.
In the meantime, as ECMAScript was being standardized (but unfortunately neglecting everything but the core language), Netscape and Microsoft introduced the 4.0 browser generation, each browser with its own completely proprietary document object model, and "Dynamic HTML" became the next morass into which JavaScript's good heart was dragged.

 PRESS RELEASE Web Leaders Agree to Add Native XML to ECMAScript   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The enhancements known as E4X (ECMAScript for XML) standardize the syntax and semantics of a general-purpose, cross-platform, vendor-neutral set of programming language extensions adding native XML support in ECMAScript.
Given the rising popularity of XML and the near universal usage of ECMAScript on the World Wide Web, the Web development community will welcome a simple, familiar, general purpose programming model for XML allowing them to harness the power and flexibility of XML immediately with little or no additional training.
