The type attribute specifies the MIME type of a script.

The type attribute identifies the content between the <script> and </script> tags.

The MIME type consists of two parts: one media type and one subtype. For JavaScript, the MIME type is "text/javascript".

Note: In HTML5, the type attribute is no longer required. The default value is "text/javascript".
