Script element not working properly(?)



  • I am trying to learn JavaScript from the book “JavaScript for Kids” by Nick Morgan. When I try to embed JavaScript in HTML, anything inside the “script” element is not displaying anything. What is going on here? Here’s the example used in the book that I am trying to replicate:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>My first proper HTML page</title>
    </head>

    <body>
    <h1>Hello World</h1>
    <p>My first web page.</p>
    <script>
    var message = “Hello world!”;
    console.log(message);
    </script>
    </body>
    </html>

    When the program is ran, everything in the “script” element should display this:
    Hello world!

    console.log(message);

    you are using the console object which means you need to open the debugging console
    from the browser you are using to see this message.



  • @Harlan-Nguyen ,

    @Eko-palypse answered your initial question, which is probably a reasonable answer.

    But really, this forum is focused on the Notepad++ editor-specific aspects of using Notepad++. It’s not a general “help me debug whatever it is I am using Notepad++ to edit” forum. This is explained with the humorous example of baking cookies in this FAQ.
