Terrible First Impression

I have taken courses on this site long ago, and my biggest frustration has always been when you know for certain you did what you were told and there is still an error. I came back to take the React course, and low and behold the very first lesson is broken. It says simply, past this code into app.js and hit run:

const h1 = <h1>Hello world</h1>;

So the logical next step would be to paste the code in, and hit run. But when I do it loads, then gives me a red X by that instruction. There are no spaces, I am in the right file, I have restarted my coarse progress, reset the file, and reloaded the site. I have checked everything I can think of. Anyone know of anything else I could be doing wrong? Or is just broken?

I have a vid but new users can’t upload attachments.

not just you… Intro to JSX, Hello World error messages
something is broken.

Pretty much every exercise in the lesson is having that issue for me. It doesn’t feel like I’m learning if I have to use the “Get code” feature for every exercise…
