SyntaxError parse error as far as I can tell all the syntax is correct. I keep getting this error

I keep getting this error, no matter how many times I re-write or how many different ways I write it. I tried googling a solution but I couldn't come up with anything that seemed to help. Am I missing something obvious?

var count = 0;

while (count < 26)

  document.write (count);

The brace was one issue, but the other is where you have "count+=;"   ... that's not a complete assignment.

You probably meant to write either "count += 1;" or "count++;"   Either would increment the count by one.
