What is wrong with my code? It looks correct but it has still an error.

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

  <script src="shout.js">  </script>
alert ("I DID IT!");

inside HTML:


<script src="shout.js"></script>


iside shout.js:

alert('I DID IT!');

Why did you place 2 <script> tags within <body> tags? One is enough.
