<noscript> crashes Netscape

Here's an odd one.  I'm trying to use:

<script>
document.write ("<input type=\"button\" value=\"Submit JS\" onClick=\"validateFields(this.form.name);\">");
</script>
<noscript>
<input type="submit" value="Submit noJS">
</noscript>

to write the form's submit button out depending on whether or not the client has JavaScript turned on.  Simple enough right?  But nooooooo....for some reason if I include the <noscript> option it crashes Netscape (tested with 4.7).
It's part of a layer (<div>), has a little VBScript in the page for ASP, and quite a few includes in the page which have other layers and more VBScript in them.
So given all that, any ideas? I've tried writing it out with VBScript with the same result so I'm kinda stuck now.

I have absolutely no idea what happened, but by putting in the language type (which I should have done anyway *slaps*), it seemed to solve the problem. Thanks.
