C# ASP.NET MVC Basics Views Using the Razor Syntax

Dull razor

I have tried: title @ title @ {title} @{html.raw(title)} all with poor result What am I missing in the movie?

Detail.cshtml
@{Program.cs


<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>
<head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    <title>Video Game Detail</title>
</head>
<body>
    <div>
        <h1>@{html.raw{title)<h1>

        <h5>Description:</h5>
        <div>@{html.raw(description}</div>
    </div><
</body>
</html>

Hello, look at the variables, they don't have any special characters, therefore you can access it only with @. Also, I can see you haven't in code closed brackets "{" and left over character "<". There is my solution

@{
    Layout = null;

    var title = "Super Mario 64";
    var description = "Super Mario 64 is a 1996 platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64.";
}

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>
<head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    <title>Video Game Detail</title>
</head>
<body>
    <div>
        <h1>@title</h1>

        <h5>Description:</h5>
        <div>@description</div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>

I was going to give you some hints.

But it looks like Thomas beat me and left you an explicit code spoiler.

But I liked the funny title of your question !

I tried the correct code for part of three days and finally it was accepted. Treehouse has issued with the minority of us who prefer Linux machines. Thanks
