Free JavaScript Manuals that can be printed from Netscape
For those of you who are using JavaScript in Brio, here are 2 free manuals that contain the core JavaScript Syntax. If you purchase a JavaScript book, it will contain lots of information on writing JavaScript for websites (which has no relevance to Brio and EIS development.)

When you get to the website, scroll down to the bottom, under obsolete manuals and select:

  • Core JavaScript Guide V1.4
  • Core JavaScript Reference V1.4

Netscape considers them obsolete manuals because V1.5 is the current version but Hyperion/Brio embedded V1.4 in their product.
