RFC: Version Information in Style Element


using the "type" attribute to set both the language and the required version 
number is not a clean solution. Browser applications need to hard-code which 
language and version they support from a one-dimensional list of supported 
scripting languages.

Thus, I'd like to suggest to add a "version" attribute to the script 

  <!ATTLIST script version CDATA -- absolute decimal number -->

...and to other elements dealing with scripting, like the meta tag:

  <meta http-equiv="Content-Script-Version" content="1.3">

This would yield in much cleaner implementation of version checking.

What's your oppinion?
