[thelist] if else if sanity check

(It's JavaScript, but I'm really looking for the overall concept)

When an if-then finds a true condition to act on, does it exit, or could it
continue checking for other true conditions? I've got an bit more or less
like this:

If type = computer Then
    do the computer stuff
    type = test Then
    do the test stuff
    total > limit Then
    go somewhere totally different
End If

If type = computer AND total > than limit, and the required actions aren't
mutually exclusive, would it do both, or do the first, then exit? I've
always assumed it would just do the first, then quit checking.
