HTML Attribute for <SCRIPT ...>
TYPE ="text/javascript" |"text/vbscript" |other scripting language

Usage Recommendation
thumbs up Use it.

TYPE, which is required, indicates the scripting language to use for the <SCRIPT ...> element. The most common value for TYPE is text/javascript, which indicates that the script is written in JavaScript. Other possible values are text/vbscript for VBScript (which only supported by MSIE) or text/tcl for Tcl (a great language but not well supported at all).

The following example creates a small JavaScript script that outputs the current time:

<SCRIPT TYPE="text/javascript">
document.write("<P>right now: " + new Date() + "<P>");

which gives us:

<SCRIPT SRC="..."> >
