HTML5 <noscript> Tag

The HTML <noscript> tag is used to define a section of html to be inserted if a script type on the page is unsupported or if scripting is currently turned off in the browser.

Both the starting and ending tag are mandatory for this element. The parent of the <noscript> tag can be any element that accepts phrasing content, if there are no ancestor <noscript> element, or in a <head> element (but only for an HTML document), here again if there are no ancestor <noscript> element.

The content permitted inside this element depends on following situations:

  • When scripting is disabled and when it is a descendant of the <head> element: in any order, zero or more <link> elements, zero or more <style> elements, and zero or more <meta> elements.
  • When scripting is disabled and when it isn’t a descendant of the <head> element: any transparent content, but no <noscript> element must be among its descendants.
  • Otherwise: flow content or phrasing content.
