    Hey, I'm putting a really basic .js code in my pages, and rather than type up the code each time I want to just save it externally in an index. W3 Schools says you need to remove the <script> tags from the .js document, so I'm wondering if that means I should open up with:

    or if I should open up with <script type="text/javascript">
    and just leave off the </script> at the end.

    You don't open (or close) with any <> tags in the .js document. Just include what you were normally containing within the <script> tags. For example, your file might start with a "var xyz = 'test';" or perhaps a "function function_name (param) {..."
