Is this another broken task?

I am getting sick and tired of this. I know I code right, but it keeps telling me BUMMER all the time.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <title>Document</title>
</head>
<body>
    <h1 class="profile-header"></h1>
    <p class="profile-text"></p>

    <script
    src="jquery-3.2.1.min.js"></script>
    <script src="app.js"></script>
</body>
</html>
app.js
$('.profile-text').text("I am a web developer");
$('.profile-header').html("Student <span>Profile</span>");

This code looks right to me. So I copy/pasted it directly into the challenge and it passed all 3 tasks.

Try again? Perhaps after restarting your browser?

This type of error has happend to me twice today... :(

Just curious, what kind of computer/OS/browser are you using?

I'm currently running on Windows 10 and I'm using Chrome or Firefox.

OK. FYI, I run Chrome on Windows and I don't think I've ever had a "false fail".
