Can someone point me toward information that details the limitations of JavaScript on Windows Mobile devices?

I'm also looking for limitations of CSS.

for css (Windows Mobile 5):
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa455234.aspx

for scripting:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa455291.aspx

There's bound to be similar information in msdn for other version of windows mobile. The hard part is to understand some of this documentation...

Well depend what browser uses this windows Mobile device. Most of modern devices got installed browsers know for web developers as  Webkit (Safari) and Mozilla Firefox. But if the device that you ask for does not use one of those browsers then you might encounter alot of diffrences. You need to specify what model of devices you are interested in (or all ?)

I'm doing research for a project hence the reason why I didn't specify browser information. The nice thing is that since its for a company application, the specific device and Windows Mobile version can both be specified.
