HTML 'script' Tag/Element as Inline Element


What Is an HTML "script" Tag/Element?



A "script" element is both an inline element and a block element that you can use to specify a script code to be executed by browsers. Here are basic rules about "script" elements:

  • "script" elements are inline elements.
  • "script" elements are also block elements.
  • Most browsers will executed contents of "script" elements as script code.

Below is a good tutorial example of using "script" elements:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  <title>SCRIPT Elements</title>
  <p>Let's ask the browser to calculate: <br/>
  sqrt(2.0) = <script type="text/javascript">

If you save the above document as inline_script.html, and view it with Internet Explorer, you will see that the browser calculates sqrt(2.0) correctly and displays the result as shown below:
