- Spawn of Visual Basic VBScript's roots are in Microsoft's Visual Basic product. VBScript is a slightly augemented (with regular expressions and a few other pieces) subset of Visual Basic. VBScript can usually be mixed into Visual Basic applications easily.
- VBScript in the browser VBScript is a Microsoft-only phenomenon. Internet Explorer is the only browser platform on which VBScript is supported. As a result, VBScript client-side code is typically only used on IE-only intranets.
- VBScript on the server VBScript is commonly used with Microsoft's Active Server Pages.
- VBScript and Unicode VBScript provides some functions (like ChrW) for Unicode support, but defaults to Windows ANSI.
