    Windows script encoder

    How good is the windows script encoder for protecting javascript? Haven't used it, just read about it at Microsoft's site http://msdn.microsoft.com/downloads/...positedoc.xml.

    It's just as easily decoded as it is encoded.

    Not worth the time and effort IMHO.

    Besides, it requires that your <script> tags be language="JScript Encoded", and the language attribute for <script> tags is not valid in XHTML 1.0 Strict.

    I moved the thread to the Javascript Programming forum.

    Anyway, it is bad. It wrecks the script in any non-IE browser.

    Thanks. I just found that there are too many decoders available already. Wish javascript was a compiled language . Well, then it wouldn't be platform independent. Maybe it'd be better to compile it to bytecode. Well, there's already java, and there are too many decompilers. Anyways, why worry about plagiarism of my code while most of it is already unoriginal in a way

    What JSEncoded decoders are there, and where? And what does IMHO mean anyway?!?
