HTML Build an Interactive Website Google Maps Integration Adding a Dynamic Map

cannot get through this last Task for google api

its on the build and interactive website course, Google maps integration badge, Adding a dynamic map objective, the last question (question no.7)

the task is : Set the "theMap" to a new google.maps namespaced "Map" object with the parameters of "mapElement" and "mapOptions"

everything seems to be ok but I keep getting the error that previous tasks are no longer passing, which doesnt make sense

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <style type="text/css">
    body, html {
    body, html, #map {

  <div id="map"></div>
    <script type="text/javascript"

    <script type="text/javascript">
      var mapOptions = {
        center: new google.maps.LatLng(28.42, -81.58),
        zoom: 18,
        mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.SATELLITE                       

    var mapElement = document.getElementById("map");

    var theMap = new google.maps.Map(mapElement, mapOptions);

thanx lonnie, but it turns out its a bug in the software, hopefully they'll fix it soon cause I want my badge :P

:) I propose a strike
