This is in reference to the VBScript FAQ.

1. "What did you think of this article?:" for this feedback is an inappropriate question (as this is an FAQ).

2. The FAQ is a good start!

3. It may be useful to divide the Q/A's into sections (General, Syntax, etc.) with a TOC.

4. It may be useful to enumerate the Q/A's.

5. "Which platforms support VBScript?" is slightly misleading and unnecessary. VBScript is not compiled/interpreted on a "platform" but rather interpreted by a browser. Q3 answers which.

6. The last Q/A is not clear. The question should be "What is the difference between a Function and a Subroutine?" (There is also no "Sub-Procedure" in VBScript. There are subroutines which are represented by a Sub ... End Sub construct.) The difference is unclear as well. There are subtle differences, such as a function MUST return a value, which should be mentioned.

7. A useful question that could be added is: What is the difference between JavaScript and VBScript? Which one should I use when and why? This will of course require some thinking and expertise in both. Suggestions: VBScript is Microsoft proprietary and there is no movement for a standardization, unlike JavaScript; VBScript has a much stronger support for ActiveX controls, and in general closer ties with the Windows family-based technologies, unlike JavaScript; VBScript may be a more familiar path for those versed in Visual Basic.
