JavaScript JavaScript Basics Introducing JavaScript Link to an External Script

a bit confused how to do an alert inside using javascript code shout.js? See below

<body> <script src="shout.js"> <shout.js> alert ("I did it"); </shout.js> </script> index.html </body> </html>

index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
  <script src="shout.js"> <shout.js> 
alert ("I did it");
  </shout.js> </script>
index.html
</body>
</html>
shout.js

<script src="shout.js"> </script>

specifies external script file shout.js. That is all the code that should be in your html.

The actual script code goes into that external file - the second black box above titled shout.js. That is a separate tab in the challenge that you will have to click to edit.

have your alert(); written in the shout.js file and not the index.html.

the source on the index page is was already written in for me when i done it but if needed its <script src="shout.js"> <shout.js> and that would be in the index page.
