Question 4 of the test challenge, Web design, html, Set the character set for the page, I'm getting an error...

Why I'm getting this feedback? What am I missing here?

"Remember to add a character set attribute for your meta tag."

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

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

Do not include spaces between equal sign and "utf-8" and it works

Hi, AJ! It looks like you have two extra spaces between the "=" symbol and your character set. You'll want it to look like this:

<meta charset="UTF-8">

It doesn't really make a difference whether or not you choose to capitalize the UTF as I did above, but most guidelines will tell you that's it's generally preferred.

Awesome Keri, that worked! Thank you!!!!
