There are two kinds of "script" tags. One kind loads in an external file specified by a "src" attribute. That kind has no content between the tags.

The other kind contains code between the opening and closing tags.

In this exercise, you are creating the second kind, so it should not have a "src" attribute assignment in the starting tag. Then the code (just one "alert") needs to be placed between the starting and ending tags.

Ok. thank you very much.
