  1. Hello, this is my first post on the forums after learning HTML and JavaScript for the past 2 weeks. I have a suggestion to make for the JavaScript Functions tutorial, specifically learning how to call a function. The tutorial is very good overall and I am enjoying learning about HTML & JavaScript. As this is my first exposure to coding, my suggestion may be out of place or unusual that I did not know this particular information. However, the JavaScript tutorial never to my knowledge taught me how to call a function the way Exercise 1 at the bottom of the Function tutorial (https://www.w3schools.com/js/js_functions.asp) asked me to do. The answer to call the function as Exercise 1 asks you to do is to insert the code "myFunction();" after the curly bracket however all throughout the JavaScript and particularly the Function tutorial, the user had been taught to call functions by inserting the code "document.getElementById("demo").innerHTML = myFunction();" after the curly bracket. The "return" statement was not used in Exercise 1 as I had felt I was most comfortable using. I would suggest strongly that some line or section be inserted in the JavaScript Function tutorial to teach the method of using "myFunction();" to call a function, as I did not understand that functionality and thought the Exercise was impossible to figure out without looking at the answer. Maaaybe the Exercise is designed to teach you to call a function using "myFunction();" but if that is true, in my opinion it is a poor way to teach that tool. Thank you for your time and in general a great website.
