Writing a razor variable to the view

the razor variable raw is not working but I am calling it the exact way as the video.

Detail.cshtml
@{
    Layout = null;

    var title = "Super Mario 64";
    var description = "Super Mario 64 is a 1996 platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 64.";
}

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>
<head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    <title>Video Game Detail</title>
</head>
<body>
    <div>
        <h1>@title</h1>

        <h5>Description:</h5>
        <div>@Html.Raw(description)</div>
    </div>
</body>
</html>

Tim,

Since the description in the code challenge doesn't contain any HTML markup, so it's not necessary to use the Html.Raw method. You can just do this:

<div>@description</div>

Sorry for the confusion!

Thanks ~James
