I suppose so, with the following exceptions:
* You use WINDOW.IMAGE.CREATE instead of new Image()
* You use FOR EACH instead of new Enumerator()
* The operator in is not available, although you can use DOM ATTRIBUTES
instead
* Everything is case-insensitive, except for string literals
* The operator TYPENAME is available
* [] is unavailable but you can implicitly call the default property of an
object
* this is ME, null is NOTHING, undefined is EMPTY
* WINDOW.EVENT is global
* value assignment (without SET) automatically invokes CSTR
* exception handling is not available 
* decode/encodeURL is not available unless you import the JScript engine as
well
* Function references are not available, except that you can use GETREF to
assign dynamic event handlers to properties
* Static event handlers are assigned by name after the document is loaded
(i.e. only WINDOW_ONLOAD gets called)
* Automatic type coercion uses system locale, not C locale
Remind me if I forgot something.

Is vbscript defined to have the same dom bindings as jscript?
