Wrong Workspace for Processing JSON Data Module

I just opened the workspace for the module and it is missing the widget.index file. I don't think the work I do for the video will work if I'm missing that html file. Why is the wrong workspace coming up?

You'll be retrieving the data in a different format, called JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) and creating the widget's HTML through JavaScript, so you don't need to have a widget.html file to use. JSON is a common format for information on the web and virtually all API's these days use it. Your workspace will work just fine for this section.

OK. Thanks. Luckily I've been working on another track for the past month, but will be back AJAX shortly, very shortly.
