The same as any other unsupported value. So, the script element will not
execute.

(This includes the case where the content "looks like" some supported
language, but the type attribute says it is not).

The case-sensitivity of an Internet Media type should be defined by RFC
2046
http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc2046.txt

For types that are not +xml types (and thus, are not processed as XML)
Changing CDATA sections into Text nodes
http://www.w3.org/DOM/faq.html#CDTA-text

For xml-based scripting languages, there is nothing to specially get.
