Good Day Eric , you were almost there!

1st Remove <document.write>; completely. Than add your code in between your script tags like so:


document.write(‘Welcome to my site’);

You have accidentally over-written the opening <script> tag.

You can either refresh the page and start again or:


// document.write("Welcome to my site");


// Write your code here.
document.write("Welcome to my site");

Note: The comment, "// Write your code here.", is not required.
