Still messed up, I had the right answer but it kept saying I was wrong, merely because of one less space after the comma

this sucks

1 Answer

If you had one less space after the comma, then it would have shown "Today is July 04,2016" - which is not correct. In English, which the string is in, a space always follows a comma. So the correct answer is "Today is July 04, 2016". That's why it was returning incorrectly.

Proper spelling, punctuation, and grammar are critically important, both here and especially in real life!
If I land on a web page with errors, I usually just leave. If a designer (or client) can't take the time or care to do things properly, then I'm not the consumer for them.
I've been an editor for many years, trust me... it's all very important.
