To fix this

check  the jquery script tag , if it is like

<script  type="text/javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.3/jquery.min.js"></script>

replace it like

<script language="javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.3/jquery.min.js"></script>

and the error goes away

why IE gives the error on type=”text/javascript” i really do not know

if any one know the reason do let me know
