You are missing the exclamation point on your alert.

You got it right, but the challenge wanted "Warning!" in the alert, and you put "Warning" in the alert without the exclamation mark. The code challenges are picky about stuff like that, and it's a good idea to check and make sure you put anything that the challenge gives you in quotes into your code exactly as in those quotes. I often copy/paste from the challenge directions into my code for such things.

The correct code:

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
  <script>
  alert("Warning!");
  </script>

</body>
</html>
