I'm doing the charset correctly and it's saying it is wrong?

It says to write the <meta charset"utf-8"> and I'm writing it correctly but it's saying I'm wrong. I don't want this to effect my points

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

You are missing an = sign between charset and "utf-8". Like this:

<meta charset="utf-8">

In programming even minor typos like this is enough to make your code invalid. And the code checker is correct in marking it as wrong.

Hi Jacob,

I like to look for online references at times if there is something I am not quite getting.

Have a look at this on the charset attribute

Hope this helps you out :)
