Why won't Treehouse accept my answer on this challenge?

I tried using the method in the attached code, as well as my initial try, which I validated yields the same response:

name = "Curt"
message = "Treehouse loves {} "
subject = message.format(name)

Any explanation would be appreciated!

strings.py
name = "Curt"
subject = "Treehouse loves {} ".format(name)

:point_right: You have an extra space between the placeholder ({}) and the closing quote.

That challenge checker can be very picky!
