method, if you
decide to change the code,
you will have to make changes to every page into which you have
inserted it. You can update the single file which you created with
generated code and then all of your web pages which contain Script tags
"pointing" to that one file will show the changes when they are
displayed. This saves a lot of work.
Additonly, with the first
option you are adding what may be a lot of text to each web page file
and, if you use it in a lot of your web pages, this will increase the
amount of disk storage space you use on your computer and on the server
where your web site is hosted.
I recommend that you perform steps 1 through 3 and then make a test web
page and use it to check that the code works as you wish it to before
you change your other web pages.

Once you have it working as you want, then perform step 4 and change
your web pages. You should then text each and every page you changed to
insure that things are working as you want them to. Don't assume that
