This is a Javascript question, not a Java question; the two languages don't have much in common. I move this thread to the correct forum.

Look at your error console (in a decent browser). It will highlight the errors with error messages and line numbers.

There are a number of problems. Two immediate ones are: on line 9, you need to end the statement with a semi-colon; and on line 12, it's window.prompt, not promp.
