WTF

String firstName = "HH"; console.printf(firstName);

Telling me to check the spelling of my argument to printf??

Name.java
// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
String firstName = "HH";
console.printf(firstName);

I just ran your code, it worked without flaw and everything is correct fyi. Sometimes the console on this website doesn't work. Just refresh the page and try again. It should work! Hope this helped.
