In 1992 and 1993 Nombas developed a language named Cmm (for C minus minus, or "C without the hard
stuff") for use as an embeddable scripting language, showing that it was possible to have a full-powered language that was simple enough to replace macro languages. Years later we would
change the language name to ScriptEase, because Cmm was "too negative, and the letter 'C' scared people". Cmm was first released in a shareware product called CEnvi, which won awards
and fame and is now available as ScriptEase:Desktop.
When Netscape's first commercial browsers were released we made a version of CEnvi that could handle short
scripts embedded within web pages. By embedded scripts within the page we allowed the client side to handle processing, rather than making all dynamic interaction happen on the server. This
brought immediate client-side interaction with the user. The advantages of client-side handling were made obvious by Nombas' "Espresso Pages", and Netscape soon began work on their own
language for everything except browsers, language confusion quickly ensued. The ECMA standards body then took over and these companies, along with few others in the industry, created a standard
