    The HTML <noscript> Element defines 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.

    • Content categories Metadata content, flow content, phrasing content.
    • Permitted content 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.
    • Tag omission None, both the starting and ending tag are mandatory.
    • Permitted parent elements 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.
