          @David – See page 235 of "Java Script Tools Guide CS5.pdf" for details on #target and details on "namespace" for the individual application see page 191 ("Application and namespace specifiers"):

          #target indesign-7.0

          should target CS5


          #target indesign-7.5

          should target CS5.5


          #target indesign-8.0

          should target CS6


          However I had no luck with an added locale to the version name out of the ESTK:


          #target indesign-7.5-de_de
          //Some alert:

          should address a German InDesign CS6 but yielded an error:


          "indesign-7.5-de_de is undefined"


          The following would work, but I cannot test against a second (e.g. international) version installed:

          #target indesign-7.5 de_de
          //Some alert:



          However, if you double click on a script in the Scripts Panel and you are using no #target direction the targetted app should automatically be the app where the Scripts Panel belongs to.
