  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>

alert("I DID IT!");

Hello chris,

thanks for the answer.Can you show exactly the line i should write this code

Hi Emmanuel

You have 2 files, the "index.html" file and the "shout.js" file. You have to write the alert("I DID IT!") in the shout.js file, not in the index.html file.

I hope this helps.
