Comment:
In “The elements of HTML” → “Scripting” → “The script element”
(4.3.1 as of 2011/10/06 (yyyy/mm/dd)), it is said that the default value for
the type attribute of the script element is “text/javascript”.

Why not prefer “application/javascript” or “application/ecmascript”,
as recommended by RFC 4329?
