    Default Java script attributes missing need help

    On drop down box
    <script language="JavaScript1.2"> is used but html checker says this is incorrect and should be something like below:
    <language="text/javascript"> but when i replace above with this drop down box does not work?

    Entire script for head:

    <script language="JavaScript1.2">

    // Drop-in content box- By Dynamic Drive
    // For full source code and more DHTML scripts, visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com
    // This credit MUST stay intact for use

    var ie=document.all
    var dom=document.getElementById
    var ns4=document.layers
    var calunits=document.layers? "" : "px"

    var bouncelimit=32 //(must be divisible by 8)
    var direction="up"

    function initbox(){
    if (!dom&&!ie&&!ns4)
    return
    crossobj=(dom)?document.getElementById("dropin").style : ie? document.all.dropin : document.dropin
    scroll_top=(ie)? truebody().scrollTop : window.pageYOffset
    crossobj.top=scroll_top-250+calunits
    crossobj.visibility=(dom||ie)? "visible" : "show"
    dropstart=setInterval("dropin()",50)
    }

    function dropin(){
    scroll_top=(ie)? truebody().scrollTop : window.pageYOffset
    if (parseInt(crossobj.top)<100+scroll_top)
    crossobj.top=parseInt(crossobj.top)+40+calunits
    else{
    clearInterval(dropstart)
    bouncestart=setInterval("bouncein()",50)
    }
    }

    function bouncein(){
    crossobj.top=parseInt(crossobj.top)-bouncelimit+calunits
    if (bouncelimit<0)
    bouncelimit+=8
    bouncelimit=bouncelimit*-1
    if (bouncelimit==0){
    clearInterval(bouncestart)
    }
    }

    function dismissbox(){
    if (window.bouncestart) clearInterval(bouncestart)
    crossobj.visibility="hidden"
    }

    function truebody(){
    return (document.compatMode && document.compatMode!="BackCompat")? document.documentElement : document.body
    }


    window.onload=initbox

    </script>

    It is. The language attribute has been deprecated for several years, and the type attribute (its replacement) has been required for just as long.

    and should be something like below:
    <language="text/javascript">
    If that's literally what you're told to use, then the report from this 'HTML Checker' is broken. It should be:

    HTML Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
