HTML Form Text Input Problem

I have created a form with text input. I am trying to set the text input to contain "Hello world." The challenge tells me to set the value, so I did, as you'll see in my attached code. What am I missing?

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>HTML Mastery Challenge</title>
    <h1>HTML Mastery Challenge</h1>

    <!-- Write your code below -->
    <h2>Shopping List</h2>  
        <li>Cleaning supplies</li>
    <p>Wanna see<STRONG> bold</STRONG> text?</p>
      <input type="text" name="Hello world" value="Hello world">

Two minor things (but the little things matter a lot when coding):

  • The challenge doesn't ask you to give the input a name attribute, so you'll want to remove that.
  • Even more minor...you'll need to capitalize "world"

Hope that helps!
