[thelist] XHTML and language="javascript"

I've been coding pages as closely to XHTML Strict as possible, but holding 
back in a few places.  I wondered if it's time to take the plunge to 
complete compliance.

I've been declaring <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" 
src="myfile.js">.  I read somewhere that I should retain the language 
attribute for compatibility with older browsers, but now I can't remember 
just which browsers I'm protecting here.  Should I drop the language 
attribute?  What browsers require the language attribute?

I'm on digest, so my reply to this thread will be a little slow, okay?
