JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Making Decisions with Conditional Statements Introducing Conditional Statements

This is not a question but an actual report of an error. My code does not pass step 2, but i get the correct alert

Even though the condition passes, I get the "Oops! It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing" message. I'm saying that the condition passes because i get the alert message saying "You are correct".

var answer = prompt('What is the best programming language?');
if (answer.toUpperCase() === 'JAVASCRIPT'){
  alert('You are correct');
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
  <title>JavaScript Basics</title>
<script src="app.js"></script>

I can verify you are correct. However, if you do exactly what they say and compare to the string 'JavaScript' without that fancy answer.toUpperCase(), it works.

That is odd though that task 1 would fail.
