<!DOCTYPE HTML> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"> <title>JavaScript Basics</title> </head> <body> <script src="script.js"></script> </body> </html>

Please look at the above. Notice that script.js is added after the src attribute. Scripts are often put as the last item in the body to ensure that all of the HTML loads before the Javascript is run.
