The script tag in HTML is a powerful element that allows us to incorporate scripts into our web pages. These scripts can add interactivity and dynamic functionality to our websites. However, before we can start writing scripts, we need to specify the scripting language we’ll be using.
To set the scripting language for a script tag, we use the type attribute. This attribute tells the browser which scripting language to expect within the script tag. Let’s take a closer look at how this attribute works.
The syntax for setting the scripting language with the type attribute is as follows:
If you want to use a different scripting language, such as VBScript or TypeScript, you need to explicitly specify it in the type attribute. Here are a few examples:
As you can see, by changing the value of the type attribute, we can switch between different scripting languages within our HTML documents.
Now that you understand how to set the scripting language using the type attribute of the script tag, you can start writing scripts and adding dynamic functionality to your web pages. Happy coding!
