    <script>src=("shout.js".alert"hello noel");</script> 

you just need to link shout.js <script src="shout.js"></script> and then write alert('I did it '); in the file that you have shout.js not in the same line with the script tags :)

Check your opening script tag. The src is an attribute of the script tag itself.

So when your trying to link an external javascript file the skeleton of the link would look like this:

<script #your attributes src, type, etc#></script> or <script src=""></script>

Can you please just try the way that I told you :)

Because i just try linking the script tag as i write you and that's the right way :)
