Hi! It looks like you need a closing " after scripts.js in your html file.

Hey Ira,

Your loop code is working exactly as it should. There are no errors of any kind in your code. First, make sure when you're running the scripts in a page that the scripts are contained within a <script> element, and that your HTML is set up properly.

Also, make sure your page is saved before refreshing the page and previewing the changes. If that does not work, you should delete your recent history. Your browser may be attempting to use a cached version of your script.

If none of that works, please post your full code like how its shown below. You would replace "css" with "javascript" when doing a code block:
