JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Introducing JavaScript Your First JavaScript Program

After I clicked Check Work, I got a Bummer: You didn't call document.write function. What did I do incorrectly?

Did I enter in the wrong code or did I place it in the wrong spot?

Hi Tabitha,

In JavaScript, any text after // on a line is treated as a comment and ignored. This is why it is greyed out. You will notice that when you remove the // in the challenge, the syntax highlighting will kick in.

You also have a small typo, the < that begins the <h1> tag should be inside your string (i.e., inside the quotes) not at the beginning of your JavaScript expression.

Hope that clears everything up,
