Task 6 - setting mapElement

I have tried exactly what is in the Google API documentation for this task, but cannot get it to pass. Any help would be appreciated.

You need to set the div element with the id map as the value of the mapElement variable.

So, where it says:

var mapElement;

Change that into:

var mapElement = document.getElementById("map");

Thank you. That did the trick.
