I can add javascript anywhere within the html of a web page between tags <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> and </script> but can I move the javascript to a .js file and add a reference to the file within the html eg:  
<script src="includes/javascript/images.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
will this work if it's outside the head tags, and if so will it pass a W3C xhtml compliance test?

I just seem to remember that it caused me an error last time. I'll try it out.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
