**[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?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
</head>
<body>
<script>
  alert("Does this even work");
  <script>
</body>
</html>

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