Description Anne 2012-03-13 19:15:05 UTC
<style> or <link> without a type attribute is fine. No reason I "should add" one.
Comment 1 Michael[tm] Smith 2012-03-14 01:22:59 UTC
To be clear, HTML5 makes the type attribute optional

For reference:

And browsers handle link and style content just fine if the type attribute is omitted. So for authors there really is not much point in including it and for validators there is not much point in checking for it or reporting anything about it.
Comment 2 Ms2ger 2012-03-14 10:52:52 UTC
In particular, this seems rather out of scope for a *CSS* validator.
