<html lang="en">
<head>
    <title>Document</title>
</head>
<body>
    <h1 class="profile-header"></h1>
    <p class="profile-text"></p>

    <script
    src="jquery-3.2.1.min.js"></script>

</body>
</html>

It's not a bug, but the challenges are very picky about literal arguments given in the instructions.

In this case, the instructions asked for "Student <span>Profile</span>", but the code above is missing the space before the span.

Thanks I miss spaces way to often.
