Minor style suggestion: it would be helpful to toss in the phrase "Google's JavaScript engine" or something similar in there somewhere, perhaps right after the first mention of V8. I drew a complete blank trying to remember where V8 is from.

Thanks for the note; fixed.

Thanks, Wingo! These posts are really cool, and doing a great job of explicating some complex beasts.

I have to read a couple compiler books before reading this.
