well, this is valid for XHTML 1.0, for mozilla 1.5 but
Internet Explorer 6 would render an empty page with a JS error
because it can't find a closing </script> even if <script ends with />

it took me a long time to figure that it was an IE bug
neither tidy nor w3c validator reported any error which is normal as my code was compliant

grrr, sending a bomb to redmond
