Placement of Script in CSS vs. JS

Why are I typing code into CSS script as opposed to JavaScript?



I think you are confusing




I'm generally confused then! The code test wanted me to add "var = " code into CSS script area of the HTML index... I thought "var" belonged in a .js file or at least the .js <script> area in HTML index.

I agree with Jeff. Looking at the code challenge, the link to the css file is above the opening <script> tag. As long as your Javascript is between the opening and closing script tags e.g. <script> your code goes here </script>, you will be fine.

yes I think you are definitely confusing script tags with style tags. Watch the video carefully and you will see that there is no such thing as a "CSS script" area.
