capturing visitor input challenge task 2

I cant see where I have gone wrong with the code:

var answer = prompt('what day is it?');

I get an error message saying "you didn't put 'what day is it' in the prompt box?

var answer = prompt('what day is it?');

Don't forget to use the capital "W" at the beginning of your question.

Thank you cant believe I have been looking at that for ages, did I just need the capital W because the answer had to be exactly as it was written in the question?

Yes, I guess it is case sensitive.
