Comment out HTML don’t see the mistake

Am embarrassingly stuck on something so simple. After running tests, the computer says paragraph is not commented out.

Your code so far


<!-—
<h1>Hello World</h1>
-—>

<h2>CatPhotoApp</h2>

<!-—
<p>Kitty ipsum dolor sit amet, shed everywhere shed everywhere stretching attack your ankles chase the red dot, hairball run catnip eat the grass sniff.</p>
-—>

For some reason you are using a long dash and a short dash instead of 2 short dashes to make the “tails” of the arrows that comment out the code. Next time make sure you write the code yourself, not try and copy paste :stuck_out_tongue: <!-- Good luck! -->

Hmm, could it be that you’re using a character that looks similar to a dash character (but actually isn’t)?
I get the following <!-— and -—> when I copy your comments. It should be <!-- and -->. The difference is subtle but it’s there.

Try copy pasting these and wrap them around your <h1> and <p> tags:

  • Opening: <!--
  • Closing: -->

I hope it helps :+1:!

I’m guessing that you are using an Apple device. You will need to go into your settings and turn off a feature called something like “smart punctuation”.

That was it. Thanks so much!

I’m glad I could help. Happy coding!
