This seems entirely focused on HTML. Does client side scripting occur in microbrowsers, or with XHTML? Mathiastck 12:10, 19 July 2007 (UTC)hghhgfgffffg

Are you sure about this?[edit]

Are you sure you are talking about client-side and not as it seems to me server-side? client-side are done on the users computer server-side are done on (as the name implies) the server Inputdata (talk) 17:57, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

List of client-side scripting languages?[edit]

Are there any other client-side scripting languages besides JavaScript that are actually used on the Web? --Abdull (talk) 22:14, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Yes there are many other languages that can be used client-side, including PHP. The most important one is Java; it was the first, before JavaScript. If Java is not considered a scripting language then this topic should be renamed to something more appropriate (such as client-side programming) but I think it is appropriate to call Java a scripting language. There should at least be mention of Java here somewhere somehow. I came here for a comprehensive list of all languages that can possibly be used client-side. The list here is disappointing.

Also note that all mention of jQuery seems inappropriate here; jQuery is written entirely in JavaScript, correct? So jQuery belongs in the JavaScript page. Also, is Ajax a language? As best as I understand, it is not. It is relevant to cliet side programming but it is not a language. The list of client-side languages needs to be filled with other languages.
