By adding the required attribute. The document type definition specifies 
that the type="..." attribute is required for a <script> element.

As far as the validator is concerned, any value will do, since the 
attribute is declared with a CDATA value. In practice, people use 
type="text/javascript", which is recognized by all relevant browsers. 
According to RFC 4329 ( http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc4329.html ), that 
value is obsolete; in reality, the preferred "application/javascript" 
may have more limited browser support.
