    The language attribute is deprecated, but having it doesn't break anything.

    As of HTML5, the type attribute is optional. Even before HTML5, the script tag will still work without it.

    Good question.

    IE8 and older don't seem to recognize
    Code:
    <script src="s.js" type="application/javascript"></script>
    This is what I recommend and use myself:
    Code:
    <script src="s.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    Remember people spend most of their time on other people's sites (so don't violate web design conventions).
