     I don't in fact understand what you mean. Javascript 1.3, as I found,
has grammar specified by ECMA-262, which I started to implement two years
ago without any document object model, so after one month, after I found
specification Javascript 1.1, I changed it. ECMA-262 has some
disadvantages, like lot of reduce-reduce and shift-reduce conflicts, the
former ones are BAD, the ladder ones are acceptable. Document object model
from Javascript 1.3 (what I have seen, if I am right) could be specified
by some paper somewhere on

     As I have written, I don't understand meaning of your remark, but as
I think, the grammar from ECMA-262 won't be used, I'll try to make some
grammar close to LALR(1) class of grammars. Features of Javascript
specified by ECMA-262 will probably motivate me to enhance some features,
but there are some features I don't want to do (like prototypes which
are supported by javascript 1.1 spec. too) and it will be hard problem to
make me do them. B-)

     I've heard about Javascript 1.5, but I don't know anything about it.
Do you know about some specification? I guess it is language interpretable
only like this:
x.*	show(oraculum());


     Have a nice day
