Need suggestions below.

Page renames per Julee:

  BEFORE --> AFTER
  javascript/Objects      javascript/objects
  javascript/Constants    javascript/constants
  javascript/Properties   javascript/properties
  javascript/Functions    javascript/functions
  javascript/Methods      javascript/methods
  javascript/Operators    javascript/operators
  javascript/Operators/*  javascript/operators/* (all subpages)

Not modified, unless someone has a better suggestion:

  javascript/JavaScript Reference      "JavaScript Reference" capitalized
  javascript/Math/Math Constants       "Math Constants" capitalized
  javascript/Number/Number Constants   (same)
  javascript/RegExp/1 9 Properties     "Properties" capitalized

Not modified, unless someone has a better suggestion.  The following are
language elements that are ideas and are not named:

    javascript/Regular Expression        (note: different than Regex)
    javascript/operators/Addition Assignment
    javascript/operators/Addition
    javascript/operators/Assignment
    javascript/operators/Bitwise AND Assignment
    javascript/operators/Bitwise AND
    javascript/operators/Bitwise Left Shift
    javascript/operators/Bitwise NOT
    javascript/operators/Bitwise OR Assignment
    javascript/operators/Bitwise OR
    javascript/operators/Bitwise Right Shift
    javascript/operators/Bitwise XOR Assignment
    javascript/operators/Bitwise XOR
    javascript/operators/Comma
    javascript/operators/Comparison
    javascript/operators/Compound Assignment
    javascript/operators/Conditional Ternary
    javascript/operators/delete
    javascript/operators/Division Assignment
    javascript/operators/Division
    javascript/operators/in
    javascript/operators/Increment and Decrement
    javascript/operators/instanceof
    javascript/operators/Left Shift Assignment
    javascript/operators/Logical AND
    javascript/operators/Logical NOT
    javascript/operators/Logical OR
    javascript/operators/Modulus Assignment
    javascript/operators/Modulus
    javascript/operators/Multiplication Assignment
    javascript/operators/Multiplication
    javascript/operators/new
    javascript/operators/Right Shift Assignment
    javascript/operators/Subtraction Assignment
    javascript/operators/Subtraction
    javascript/operators/typeof
    javascript/operators/Unsigned Right Shift Assignment
    javascript/operators/Unsigned Right Shift
    javascript/operators/void

For all but the first above, the parent javascript/operators is fixed, but
these are multiword page names, where the *lower*-case page names are
JavaScript language elements (delete, in, new, typeof, void) and the
upper-case page names are descriptions of the operator (to differentiate
between language element and non-language element in the *reverse* sense of
using case).  Whereas javascript/Math is a Math object, a
javascript/operators/Division is really a "/" which is unusable as a page
name, so a descriptive word "Division" is used instead.

Perhaps under operators we don't want to lower-case everything like this:

    javascript/operators/subtraction
    javascript/operators/typeof
    javascript/operators/unsigned right shift assignment
    javascript/operators/unsigned right shift
    javascript/operators/void

because the above strategy makes typeof and void (actual operators)
indistinguishable from words used to describe the operators (subtraction
and unsigned right shift).  Maybe that doesn't matter though since people
can just read the page.
