Javascript Question

Why my Highchart won't appear in my HTML page

Updated: I finally got it to work.I typed the jquery script before the chart script.

I'm totally new to HTML, I'm trying to write a simple code to have two charts on one page, so I tried to place a simple highcart, like the one in this link:
http://jsfiddle.net/gh/get/jquery/1.9.1/highslide-software/highcharts.com/tree/master/samples/highcharts/demo/line-basic/

in an HTML code, but my chart won't appear when I tested it in an HTML editor. Below is my HTML code. Also, how do I create two graphs on the same page with different data, do I repeat the same js code and replace "container" with another name?

Updated code:

<html>
<head>
<title> Test Chart </title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://code.highcharts.com/highcharts.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://code.highcharts.com/modules/exporting.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

$(function () {
$('#container').highcharts({
title: {
text: 'Monthly Average Temperature',
x: -20 //center
},
subtitle: {
text: 'Source: WorldClimate.com',
x: -20
},
xAxis: {

'Jul', 'Aug', 'Sep', 'Oct', 'Nov', 'Dec']
},
yAxis: {

},
plotLines: [{

}]
},

verticalAlign: 'middle',

});

<div id="container" style="min-width: 310px; height: 400px; margin: 0 auto"></div>
<div id="container2" style="min-width: 310px; height: 400px; margin: 0 auto"></div>

Answer

Include jQuery in your page as well, as the commenter said you can include it with this.

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.0/jquery.min.js"></script>‌​

Then you need to fix this typo:

$(#'container)'.highcharts should be $('#container').highcharts
