I use XHTML 1.0 Strict as DTD and I found something really funny. If you have
<script type="text/javascript" href="foo.js" /> in your code, you get "This Page
Is Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict!". As a result, Internet Explorer and Opera (I haven't
checked the others) do display only blank white page while Firefox (on PC/Mac)
and Safari ignore the opened tag and display it like it's supposed to be. As far
as I know, <script> must not be used as a singleton tag.
