I have typed the same line for the meta tag as in the preceding video, yet it is being rejected. What am I doing wrong?

I am being told to 'Remember to add a character set attribute for your meta tag' and yet I thought that this is what the 4th line of my code is saying. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset = "utf-8">

Try removing the spaces on both sides of the '=' sign.

If that doesn't work, give me a shout and I'll look further.
