Challenge: Declare the Doctype of an HTML Document

Link to the challenge:

Looks like your missing just one element. You need to add some copy to the h1 tag. This may not solve your issue.
Sorry, it a type in your closing html tag.

Hello!

You misspelled the closing html tag: should be </html>

You should get used to formatting the code, which is a huge help when there are unexpected results. Press Control + Shift + i when you’re on the FCC code editor.

oh man wow thank you so much i feel like a fool. simple enough mistake just gotta slow my reading down.

No need :stuck_out_tongue:! @ProgMan nor I saw the error at first, so this happens to everyone of us.

Besides, once you know more, you will use code editors that highlight those mistakes :slight_smile:.

what people refer to as ‘over-thinking’ is really just misplaced attention.

attention-to-detail is a good programmers super-power.

its a skill which should be consciously developed and refined in addition to learning actual coding.
