On line 26 of "index.html" there is a hyphen instead of an equal sign, which prevents the script from loading:

    <script src-"temp.js"></script>  <!-- current line 26 -->
    <script src="temp.js"></script>  <!-- but it should be this -->

Awsome, thanks for catching that.

Your code is correct. Could it be that scripts are disabled in your browser?

How do I enable my scripts in browser?

I do have scripts enabled. What else could this be?
