|Use it, but understand some of the strange problems associated with this attribute.|
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="...">: it designates which scripting language is being used. If the browser doesn't recognize the language, it shouldn't try to run the scripts in such events as
onChange. Unfortunately Netscape ignores
<INPUT LANGUAGE="...">, and so attempts to run the event scripts. If the scripts are written in VBScript, you get errors. We suggest you only use VBScript in forms where only MSIE users will use the page, such as in a company intranet.
Even if you are using MSIE only, this attribute has
anomalies. If you use
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=VBSCRIPT>, any
"VBScript" in every
<INPUT ...> tag. Even if MSIE assumes you are using VBScript, it's better not to rely on that sort of faulty behavior.
