HTML <script> Tag

The HTML <script> tag is used to specify a client-side script. It may be an internal or external JavaScript which contains scripting statements, hence we can place <script> tag within <body> or <head> section.

It is mainly used to manipulate images, form validation and change content dynamically. JavaScript uses document.getElementById() method to select an HTML element.
