I have no idea of the true syntax. 20th try and nothing.

fuction (sayHi)() alert('Hi') } ()function say HI (Hi) alert sayHi(); }

function sayHi()
alert("Hi") }
(Hi)function sayHi(Hi) 
alert sayHi();
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

<script src="script.js"></script>

The sayHi function should have a { to start the code block.

function sayHi() {

To call the function, add the line sayHi() outside of the function.
