removing and adding a paragraph

I thought that all we had to do was to add text to the paragraph; is this not correct? What is this challenge asking for?

app.js
var body = document.body;
var newParagraph = document.createElement("p");
var pleaseEnableParagraph = document.querySelector("#please_enable");

// Add text to the new paragraph

var newParagraph=document.createElement("JavaScript is enabled");

//Remove "Please Enable JavaScript" paragraph

body.removeChild(pleaseEnableParagraph);

//Append new paragaph to document

body.appendChild(newParagraph);
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <body>
    <p id="please_enable">Please Enable JavaScript</p>

    <script src="app.js"></script>
  </body>
</html>

You need to modify the "innerHTML" of the newParagraph variable to equal "JavaScript is enabled"
