Can I use all the HTML tags inside a script tag of type javascript [closed]

No. You can’t. HTML is not Javascript (obviously). Any raw html inside a <script> block is simply a syntax error:

<script>
    <div>Hi mom!</div> // <-- javascript syntax error

    var foo = '<div>Hi mom!</div>'; // valid javascript.
</script>

The second one works because it’s NOT Html. It’s a javascript string that contains some characters that LOOK like html.

The only HTML-ism that’s valid inside javascript is the comment opener, <!--, which is supported only for historical reasons (to hide JS from browsers which didn’t understand/support the <script> tag).
