JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Introducing JavaScript The JavaScript Console

Firefox gives a different error message.

Not really a question as I understand the lesson and the errors to be corrected. But the message I got on the JavaScript Console was: "Syntax error missing ) after argument list" Well, there were no parens missing in the code so this is a bit confusing when you want to debug.

It may be that if parenthesis are indeed there, there is a problem earlier in the code, perhaps the punctuation in your argument list, or an unterminated set of parenthesis above. In my experience the debugger is usually excrutiatingly correct about this kind of thing.
