I recall that I read a long time ago that IE uses Window's scripting 
interfaces to instantiate the script engine. Thus, it *could* be 
possible to experiment with new scripting languages in IE right now.

These scripting languages can be used in the ASP pages of a Web server, in HTML pages that run in Internet Explorer, and in Windows Script Host scripting engines on Windows 98 and Windows 2000.
