Everything is looks good. But your <script> tag is a tag for javascript and you inserting an html.file.

You also missing a ending > <script src= 'index.html' </script>

Try <script src= 'index.html'> </script>

Also to make this even better <script src= 'script.js> </script>

See what I did there.
