HTML Scripts

JavaScripts make HTML pages more dynamic and interactive.

The HTML <script> Tag

The <script> tag is used to define a client-side script, such as a JavaScript.

The <script> element either contains scripting statements or it points to an external script file through the src attribute.

Common uses for JavaScript are image manipulation, form validation, and dynamic changes of content.

The script below writes Hello World! to the HTML output:


document.write(“Hello World!”)

The HTML <noscript> Tag

The <noscript> tag is used to provide an alternate content for users that have disabled scripts in their browser or have a browser that doesn’t support client-side scripting.

The <noscript> element can contain all the elements that you can find inside the <body> element of a normal HTML page.

The content inside the <noscript> element will only be displayed if scripts are not supported, or are disabled in the user’s browser:


document.write(“Hello World!”)
<noscript>Sorry, your browser does not support JavaScript!</noscript>


A Taste of JavaScript (From Our JavaScript Tutorial)

Here are some examples of what JavaScript can do:

JavaScript can write directly into the HTML output stream:

document.write(“<p>This is a paragraph</p>”);

JavaScript can react to events:

<button type=”button” onclick=”myFunction()”>Click Me!</button>

JavaScript can manipulate HTML styles:
