Mime Type for external js file
Can't find right mime to validate document

 10:09 pm on Apr 22, 2003 (gmt 0)

Ran a few pages through the W3C validator (4.01 Transitional) and it keeps asking for a "type" declaration when calling an external javascript.

<script language="JavaScript" type=" " src="js/thisfile.js">

I've tried type="text" and type="text/plain" and a couple of subtypes I made up myself and nothing seems to work.

Actually, "text" and "text/plain" validate but the script doesn't execute when the page is loaded.

Any ideas, or just live with it?

Thanks tedster. Tried that first, must have had a typo somewhere or brain is totally mush.

Strange thing is I now of course remember always having the type declared. Don't know when or why I changed it. Oh well, nevermind. Think I'm going to call it cocktail time.

While you are discussing the code for external Javascript, I'll also throw in the code for calling external CSS with a one line instruction in the <head> section:
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" src="/path/file.css">

External CSS files must not contain any HTML tags or code.
