          Put this in your code in the <head> section:

           

          <script type="text/javascript" src="put the location of the source file here"></script>

           

          Some people like to add language="javascript" too but it isn't an absolute necessity.

            @TheirRno....: CF solution will work. But depending on what type of .js file you're trying to incorporate, you could either load it within your <head> section or anywhere towards the very bottom of your page before closing </body> tag. The difference is pageload times. Javascript calls at the very bottom will load your actual webpage much faster. Again, this may not work at all times. If your webpage uses a certain function that is controlled using a .js file, that file may need to be loaded in <head> tag.

             

            But, if you're using a plug-in that you're trying to run only after your page completely finishes loading, these scripts can be at the very bottom.

             

            This is a generic structure of a HTML5 website with CSS, JS and jQuery library:

             

            <!doctype html>

            <head>

                 <meta> <!--All metatags here-->

                 <title>Title here</title>

                 <link href="path/to/your/stylesheet.css" type="text/css"> <!--Your CSS files can be included here-->

                 <script src="path/to/your/jquery/library.js" type="text/javascript"> <!--Your jQuery library can be included at the very beginning as all jQuery plugins you'll use will rely on the library-->

            </head>

            <body>

                 YOUR MAIN WEBSITE CONTENT HERE

            <script src="path/to/your/plugin.js" type="text/javascript"> <!--Your plugins can be loaded here so the webpage loads faster-->

            </body>

            </html>

             

            And like CF says, the type definition is not necessary, but is definitely recommended to ensure browsers dont go into 'quirks' mode. Also to make your webpage W3 compliant.

                  Java & JavaScript are like apples and oranges. 2 completely different things. What you use normally for webpages with .js extension is JavaScript.

                   

                  when I made a responsive html and it keeps giving me errors when I try to add it

                  What errors did you get?
