it's become somewhat au courant to use the "type" attribute to mark
<script>blocks that you don't want to be evaluated:
<script type='text/html-template'> <div> this is a template </div> </script>
This technique is great for using the block inside the <script> for html template, to be used by JQuery. Without the <script> block, IE will mess with the source code and remove thing it does not know.
