Hi Owomugisha Birungi --

Your program consists of the JavaScript that you've written and want to include in your html. To create it, you open your text editor and write in any JavaScript that you'd like, then save it with a JavaScript extension. That would look something like myscript.js.

Then you have to include that new program in your html. To do that you link to that new JavaScript file in a similar way that you'd link a CSS file, by placing the link - which would look something like this: <script src="myscript.js"></script> - in the head of the html document.

Hope that helps!
