No, Jim is correct.  The JavaScript 1.2 core language behaves differently from 
other versions in various ways.  The DOM is the same no matter the language version.

Some of these are described in detail at 
<http://www.mozilla.org/rhino/overview.html#versions>; a summary is:

The == and != operators behave differently, Boolean() behaves differently, 
toString methods on Array and Object behave differently, Array(n) behaves 
differently, substring() behaves differently, split() behaves differently.
