    how to read .js file from html?

    Hi guys,

    I need your help, I have a problem with my external .js file where I cant be able to read the javascript to get things right and working, but it is not working when I press on the keyboard up and down arrow buttons.

    here is the html code:

    <style type="text/css">
    body {background:url('/images/blue_background.jpg') no-repeat center center fixed;}
    <body style="overflow: hidden">
      <script type="text/javascript" src="test.js"></script>
      <script type="text/javascript">

    here is the test.js file

    document.onkeydown = checkKey;
    function checkKey(e) {
    if(key == 38)
       alert('up arrow are working');
    if(key == 40)
       alert('down arrow are working');
    I have attached the zip file so you will know why it is not working.

    Any advice would be much appreicated.

    thanks in advance

    Moving to a different forum will not change the answer.
