**[SOLVED]** Problem with my script tags

The error message says that I did something wrong but it looks right to me. I have included <script> at the beginning and the end of my code yet it doesn't seem to accept it. What is wrong with what I have done?

  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

  alert("Does this even work");

Nevermind. I figured it out. I didn't add the "/" mark in the closing <script> tag. That's why it wasn't working.
