Standard bit of confusion, started by (your friends and mine!) the
marketing clods at NetScape.  JavaScript was originally named LiveScript,
and the name change was put in at the very last minute for reasons best
not gotten into.  The two languages were not created by the same company
and really have nothing in common except the letters j-a-v-a.  

So, your confusion is certainly understandable.  I'll have a look at the
hotmail site tonight and see what's going on.  And if you run into any
useful text-based applets, be sure to let me know.

Thanks for the input!

like this....)
