HTML How to Make a Website HTML First Use HTML Elements

Meta tag Charset element

When attempting to place the meta tag charset element in this practice section of the HTML quiz for building a simple website I am putting <meta charset = "utf-8"> in the head section of the code and it is telling me that it is incorrect. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. AS far as I can tell it is the same as when we practiced it.
