Understanding Web Scripts

With PowerPoint 2002's Web functionality, you have the ability to save presentations as HTML documents and edit them in the Microsoft Script Editor. If you know HTML, you can edit HTML tags in this editor. If you know a scripting language, such as VBScript or JScript, you can create powerful scripts to augment and automate your Web-based presentations.

Today's two most popular Web browsers, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator, have embedded inside them the general-purpose core of the lightweight, object-oriented programming language referred to as both JavaScript (in the case of Navigator) and JScript (in Internet Explorer). Possessing this embedded code enables browsers to read segments of the scripting language that have been written directly into HTML documents. This is referred to as client-side scripting.
