Description

Line 633 in Wordpress 2.3 widgets.php outputs:

<script lang='javascript'>

The "lang" attribute of the script tag is deprecated. This causes HTML validation via the W3C's validator to fail. Two errors are reported. The first is the use of the deprecated lang attribute and the second is the missing type attribute which should be set to "text/javascript".
