Do you remove "Language" from your script tag?

Last updated by Tom Bui [SSW] 9 months ago.See history

Years ago, it was common to have the "language" attribute within the script tags. This attribute was used to specify the scripting language of the contents of this element.

Since these identifiers are not standard, this attribute has been deprecated in favor of "type".

<script href="script.js" language="javascript"></script>

Figure: Bad example - Language attribute has been deprecated

<script href="script.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Figure: Good example - The scripting language is specified as a content type
