           Summary: move text/javascript to application/javascript
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: jonathan@britto.co

In the specification:
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec-LC/infrastructure.html#dependencies

The default type is specified as: "text/javascript" which is obsolete and I
think it would be better to be: "application/javascript"

Despite its lack of Internet explorer adoption I see that less of an issue as
it will hinder the adoption of the correct mime type.

I feel a note explaining the differences and that "application/javascript" is
the correct usage and also the default would preserve the integrity of this
document and be in tune with what IETF are specifying.
