The html validator has no trouble with my pages as long as I stick to transitional instead of strict code. I want to be more strict though. Many of my pages belong to "WebRings" that have javascript code for the navigation bars. One of the validator errors says that "language" is not a valid attribute. How do I get around this?

My site is at with different webrings on about 60 of my 150 pages. Yes, I know there are other issues on the homepage before it would validate as strict, but I am asking here just about the way to make the javascript validate in an html 4.01 strict document.
