My guess is that myHeading n your HTML is not an id or is spelled differently. Could you post your html code as well?

sure here it is: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>JavaScript and the DOM</title> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css"> </head> <body> <h1 id="myHeading">JavaScript and the DOM</h1> <p>Making a web page interactive</p> <sciprt src="app.js"></sciprt> </body> </html>

Hi, Your script tag is misspelt.

 <sciprt src="app.js"></sciprt> 

Should be

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

It should work now.

Thank you very much!!!!
