Hello,

ECMAScript is not a W3C Recommendation, it is an ECMA
standard. It is not W3C's role to recognize ECMAScript
other than as a standard.

If you mean "Will ECMAScript work with HTML?" the answer
is "yes" because HTML allows you to use any scripting
language. You must, however, specify the MIME type
of the language with the "type" attribute of the SCRIPT
element. 

I don't know the MIME type for ECMA script, but you might
consult http://www.ecma.ch/ and follow the links for standard
ECMA-262.

I hope this answers your question.

 - Ian
