As far as the UA default style sheet is concerned, the HTML (and SVG)  
<script> element(s) should have display:none specified. Once an author  
overrides that it will simply show up, unless an ancestor has display:none  
specified of course (e.g. the HTML <head> element). It's not really  
special in any particular way when it comes to CSS layout.
