  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>JavaScript Basics</title>

  <body>
    <script type="/javascript" src="app.js"></script>

app.js
console.log("Begin program")

The correct MIME type for a script is "text/javascript". You can also omit the "type" entirely, as it's not necessary for JavaScript.

It seems odd that it passed task 1, you may want to report this as a bug to Support. :beetle:

Thank you, I didn't even look at the html file. I assumed that part was correct sense I passed with it in the previous answer.
