I believe that my code is correct and its saying "Bummer"

Either the instructions are unclear, or the program is working, or I'm just dumb. lol Please see code and advise.

app.js
var id = "23188xtr";
var lastName =  "Smith";


var userName= id + "#" + lastName.toUpperCase();
index.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

<body>
<script src="app.js"></script>

You have to use the toUpperCase method on the id variable as well because it wants the outcome to have an uppercased XTR.
