But I don't know what it means and then it says something about if I have a template there is another way but I can't figure it out either.Any help appreciated
I am assuming you are referring to this:

How are you editing your HTML? Is it one of those free online sites, or do you upload the HTML to the webserver? Almost all tags on a web page are opened and closed. <body> is the open tag for the body container. </body> is the close tag.

A common include template is used if you are using a scripting language to generate the html. (JSP, Java, Perl, PHP, etc..) For example, one of the websites I work on using Mason (A Perl based web-templating system), I have a common header and footer page which is "included" in all page request. This keeps all of the page layout information the same across pages all pages. So lets say for example, I wanted to make a change to the menu bar. I would make the change in 1 place and it will be changed on all pages that include that file. I wouldn't need to modify every page on my site.

Back to your needs... So basically it is asking you to find the body close tag "</body>" in your html. Right before that paste the javascript specified.Ex.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html lang="en-US">
<head>
<title>Dunns Lawn Service - Home</title>
</head>
<body>
Here is the page body with a listing of your services
