You placed document.write in the wrong place. When they said to place it in the <script> tag they meant in between the opening and closing script tag, not inside the tag itself.

<script>
  document.write('Welcome to my site');
</script>

Adding something inside the tag itself should be reserved for attributes of that tag, like if you wanted to link to an external JavaScript file. Example:

<script src="external-file.js"></script>

I hope that helps.

OHHHH, I understand now. thank you very much.
