Coding challenge not accepting (correct?) mimeTypes

I browsed the docs via the provided link in the challenge, and in the section on Music or Video, it says to define mimeTypes as " video/* " and " audio/* " for catch-all intent filters. Along with "plain/text", that's exactly what I've done, but the solution is being rejected. It seems like a rather simple assignment, but if it isn't the video and audio mime types stated above, I really don't know what it is.

            </intent-filter>

            <data android:mimeType="plain/text"/>
            <data android:mimeType="image/*"/>
            <data android:mimeType="video/*"/>
          </intent-filter>
        </activity>
    </application>

Right, so I copied and pasted the three data elements from one of the other posts answering a similar question, and it worked. It turns out I had written "plain/text" (as you can see in the code above) instead of the correct "text/plain". Silly me.
