The jquery in my notepad document isn't working



I'm trying to utilize my newly acquired coding skills to create an interactive website for my tutoring.

I have saved the webpage displaying the jquery library and imported it into a notepad document using <script> </scrip> tags. I then added an alert to check if the code was working and the alert will not work. I've pasted the html and css below. Could anyone help me to identify the problem? Thanks!

<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="tutoring.css"></link>

<script type="text/javascript" src="desktop/jquery-1.6.1.min.js" ></script>

<script type="text/javascript">


 alert("I am working, yeah!!!!!");

^This you must put in <style></style> tags or an external stylesheet

^ put your jquery-1.6.1.min.js file in the same folder as the HTML file then you just use:

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.6.1.min.js" ></script>


Thanks! I'll try this!
