Meta Character section 4 of 6

It seems that there is a possible bug, unless someone can find what's wrong with my code. It's asking me to make a character set with the meta tag. I'm very sure I know what I'm typing. :)

<!DOCTYPE html>

    <meta charset = "utf-8">

Looks like I figured this one out. For some unknown reason it looks at spaces as an error before and after the equal sign.

Hi Valery,

Glad you were able to figure this out! In some places including spaces is OK, but in HTML, you can't have spaces before or after the equal sign in the syntax for an attribute.
