Don't mean to sound funny, but I did tell you lot why right at the
beginning of this thread... See below.

Referece: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_script.asp

'The "language" attribute of the script element was deprecated in HTML
4.01.' (Assumably in Transitional.. as strict was a kind of migrate
testbed to xhtml) - Instead <script type="text/javascript"> etc...
