Hi all,

I was just wondering why META tags like:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Script-Type" CONTENT="text/javascript;">

are being ignored by the HTML Validation Service?

For example see:

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://www.wyldeside.com/

I only ever use one type of scripting language on a page and I
followed the standard as described at:

http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-html40-19980424/interact/scripts.html#h-18.2.1

See "18.2.2 Specifying the scripting language" for exact details.

If the validator did acknowledge this META tag then my page would
be a valid HTML 4.0 Transitional document.
