That is XHTML 1.0 transitional text/html for the discussed URL
(from my POV, using a HTTP/1.0 GET with a homebrewn user agent).

Skipping the anti-XHTML FUD - I didn't say that Javascript is a
good idea, that inline <script> elements are a good idea, that
an attempt to create inline <style> elements with Javascript 
dynamically is a good idea, and actually I think this is all
HORRIBLY BAD, but it is still possible to get the syntax right.
