(Conditionals)I followed the directions and double checked my syntax. What am I doing wrong? The code works.

The error I get is ==> Bummer! Comparing strings is case sensitive. So 'Javascript' or 'javascript' is not equal to 'JavaScript'

But look below and lo and behold, there's nothing wrong with this code. Is it possible that something wrong happening with the website and not my answer?

app.js
var answer = prompt('What is the best programming language?');
if (answer === 'Javascript') {
  alert('You are correct');
}
