Definition and Usage

Sometimes you want to run the same JavaScript on several pages in a web site. Instead of writing the same script over and over again, create your JavaScript in a standalone file, save it with a .js extension, and then refer to it using the src attribute in the <script> tag.
Note: The external script file cannot contain the <script> tag!
Note: Remember to place the script exactly where you normally would write the script!

Browser Support

The src attribute is supported in all major browsers.


<script src="URL">
