European Open Standards Body Announces New Scripting Language Specification as Open Internet Standard
"The cooperation and speed accompanying the acceptance of the ECMAScript standard reflects the importance of open standards and the efficient exchange of information between platforms," said Jan van den Beld, secretary general of ECMA. "Open standards remove technical barriers for information distribution and are essential for industry growth."
