FIX: ASP.NET Client SCRIPT Elements Do Not Contain a Type Attribute

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
When ASP.NET generates a page that contains client-side SCRIPT elements, the SCRIPT elements do not contain a TYPE attribute. The generated SCRIPT tag follows:
<Script language="javascript">
According to the HTML 4.01 and HTML 4.0 Transitional specifications, the SCRIPT element should have a TYPE attribute as follows:
<Script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
The hotfix described in this article refers to the default client-side SCRIPT element that ASP.NET generates. It is also possible for ASP.NET-based applications to override the RegisterClientScriptBlock method of the page. After an override, ASP.NET is no longer responsible for the content of the SCRIPT element that results.
