HTML <noscript> Tag

The <noscript> tag has an alternative content, which is displayed in the browsers, that don’t support scripts, or the browsers, where the user disables the script support. In other cases, the browser ignores this tag and its content.

In HTML5 the <noscript> tag can be placed in the <head> and <body> elements. In HTML4 it can be used only in the <body> element. If the <noscript> is placed in the <head> tag, it must contain only the <link>, <style> and <meta> tags.

You can use the comment tag to "hide" scripts from browsers that don’t support client-side scripts.


The <noscript> tag comes in pairs. The content is written between the opening (<noscript>) and closing (</noscript>) tags.

Example of the HTML <noscript> tag:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Title of the document</title>
      document.write("My first code in JavaScript!")
    <noscript>Sorry, your Browser doesn’t support JavaScript!</noscript>



The <noscript> tag supports the Global Attributes and the Event Attributes.
