Right, we need the same hacks that we currently have for <script> in
the body in the head as well.

Issue created:

Seaside-Tests-pmm.21 has a test for this bug:

WAHtmlRootTest >> #testJavascript
		assert: [ :html |
			html javascript
				add: 'true & false'  ]
		gives: '<title></title><script
type="text/javascript">/*<![CDATA[*/true & false/*]]>*/</script>'

> The problem is, that in this case the javascript will be also encoded and
> this
> breaks my javascript code.
> The only solution i found up to now, is to override the encodeOn: method in
> WAScriptElement
> encodeOn: aDocument
>  aDocument openTag: self tag attributes: attributes closed: self isClosed.
>  self isClosed ifTrue: [ ^ self ].
>  self childrenDo: [ :each | aDocument nextPutAll: each].
>  aDocument closeTag: self tag

If this functionality is critical for you and you can't put the script
in an external file then this quick hack should work. Note however
that your page is unlikely to validate against XHTML. You can change
your doctype to HTML if validation is important to you.
