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?
