<NOSCRIPT> — NN 3 IE 4 HTML 4

Synopsis

<NOSCRIPT>...</NOSCRIPT>

End Tag: Required

The NOSCRIPT element is intended to display content when a browser is not set to run the scripts embedded in the current document. In practice, the element is observed only starting with Navigator 3 and Internet Explorer 4. When a user disables scripting in a browser, the NOSCRIPT element’s content is rendered wherever it falls in the source code. For older browsers, and those that don’t support scripting, the NOSCRIPT element is ignored completely. Going forward, the HTML 4.0 specification recommends that browsers also render the NOSCRIPT element’s content when scripts earlier in the document are of a language type not supported or enabled in the browser. Also, if an HTML 4.0-compatible browser should be developed that lacks scripting altogether, it, too, should render the NOSCRIPT element’s contents.

All attributes of the NOSCRIPT element were added to support Cascading Style Sheets, internationalization, and events for HTML 4.0.
