error says my warning message is not inside the <script>

I keep getting an error, saying that my alert function is not inside the <script> but I think im doing everything correctly.

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

I guess you accidentally have a closing </script> tag right before your alert. If you remove that, it should work.
