Newbie Javascript Question

So I'm sure this is absurd, but I'm a newbie to Javascript development (very familiar with normal application development though, and familiar with .NET/Java as background.)  

I've got a simple html page as follows:
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Test Page</title>
</head>
    <body>
        <div id="ecoFooter"><script src="ecobarRoot/ecoBar.js"></script></div>
    </body>
</html>

Open in new window


Then, the ecoBar.js file has this:  
initialize();

function initialize() {
	
	alert("This alert works...");
	
	var divFooter = document.getElementByID("ecoFooter");
	
	if (divFooter == null) {
		alert("Warning!  divFooter not found!");
	} else {
		alert("So far so good...");
	}
	
	alert("Test2");
	
	return;
	
}

Open in new window


I get the first alert, and then none of the alerts that follow.  Any ideas?
