JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Introducing JavaScript Write Another Program

how do you write function alert() with the message "Warning!"

It keeps saying its incorrect but I believe to be doing it right.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>

<script src="javascript">


             </script>
</body>
</html>

You don't have to specify the source attribute in the script tag because it links to nowhere. The challenge wants you to write the alert box in the index.html file. Like this:

<script>
  alert("Warning!");
</script>

Thats exactly how I had wrote it. I dont understand why its marking it wrong. :/

// Remove src="javascript"
<script src="javascript">
// and copy paste this into your challenge. Don't put anything in the script.
<script>
  alert("Warning!");
</script>
