Hi all,
I want to know is there any difference in Javascript syntax in IE in Windows 2003 Terminal Session and windows higher versions.Especially about the window.settimeout ('window.close()',3000) and form.target and window.close().
Awaiting for ur reply

Windows 2003 Terminal is a server OS... I wonder what relationship may be between a server and javascript (which is a client-side language)....

The JavaScript engine exists in the browser, not the OS mate. (If you could) run internet explorer 3 and internet explorer 6 on the same machine, there would be differences between the two browsers despite working off the same OS.

Maybe you're looking at different builds - maybe the one on Server 2003 is the latest service-pack, while your XP version is an older one?

IE6 SP2 did, iirc, include changes in the way some window code is handled, and may have affected some of those hacks that let you close windows you shouldn't be allowed to .. are you employing anything like that? How do other browsers (other than IE versions) handle the script?
