<link> and <script> tags are removed. Why?

I've been struggling for a while with coming up with a working tidy 
config file.

At the moment I have this content:

<script type="text/javascript" 
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" 
href="http://xxx/js/tabpane/tab.winclassic.css" />
<div class="tab-pane" id="tab-pane-022e4daf-9f2c-4904-afbf-96ee097e7689">
<div class="tab-page">
<span class="tab">Test</span>Dette er artig

After I run it through Tidy I get this:

<div class="tab-pane" id="tab-pane-022e4daf-9f2c-4904-afbf-96ee097e7689">
<div class="tab-page"><span class="tab">Test</span> Dette er artig</div>

I use this Tidy config file:

input-encoding: utf8
output-encoding: utf8
output-xhtml: y
show-body-only: y

Why is tidy removing my <script> and <link> tags, even though they don't 
contain any inline code at all? My tidy doesn't generate any errors 
about these tags being in error.

I want to output XHTML 1.1, but apparently Tidy only support XHTML 1.0. 
But this shouldn't pose a problem, should it? Am I missing something 

And just in case, I'll be using this in an AJAX application, that's why 
I don't need the entire header, only the body content.

I've be reading the tidy documentation up and down, I even looked at the 
tidy source code (but my C skills are not very good) to try and 
understand WHY my <script> and <link> tags are getting filtered out from 
my final output.

I'm using HTML::Tidy (perl) in the application, but the problem is also 
present when I use the command-line version (version: HTML Tidy for 
Linux/x86 released on 1st August 2004) of tidy.

So, how do I stop Tidy from removing my <script> and <link> tags?

Please CC directly to me, as I'm not a member of the mailing-list.
