I"m trying to follow a tutorial online on how to make a Todo list

I finished the following code as follows

<!doctype html>
    <title>To do list with html and javascript</title>
    ul { list-style: none; padding: 0; margin: 0; width: 400px;}
    li { border: 1px solid #ccc; background: #eee; padding: 5px 10px; color: #000; }
    li span { padding-left: 10px; cursor: default;}
    .checked { text-decoration: line-through; font-weight: bold; color: #c00;}
<h1>To Do List</h1>
<p><iput type="text" id="inItemText"/>
    <ul id= "todolist">
<script type= "text/javascript" src="todo.js"</script>
// Each item should look like <li><input type = "checkbox"/> do tutorial</li>
function updateItemStatus (){
    var cbId ="cb_","");
    var itemText = document.getElementbyId("item_" + cb.Id);
    if (this.checked) {
        itemText.className = "checked";
}   else { = "";
function removeItem(){
    var spanId ="item","");
    document.getElementById("li_" + spanId).style.display = "none";
function addNewItem(list, itemText){
    var date = new Date ();
    var id = "" + date.getHours() + date.getMinutes() + date.getSeconds() + date.getMilliseconds();
    var listItem = document.createElement("li"); = "li_" + id;
    var checkbox = document.createElement("input");
    checkbox.type = "checkbox"; = "cb_" + id;
    checkBox.oneclick = updateItemStatus;
    var span = document.createelement("span"); = "item_" + id;
    span.innertext = itemText;
    span.ondblclick = removeItem;
var inItemText = document.getElementbyId("inItemText");
inItemText.onkeyup = function (event) {
    // 13 means Enter
    if (event.which == 13) {
    var itemText = event.which;
    if (itemText == "" || itemText == " ") {
        return false;
    addNewItem(document.getElementById("todolist") itemText);
