I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into the forum, remember to precede it with a line of three backticks and follow it with a line of three backticks to make easier to read. See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.


Hi ArmoredSaint, welcome to the forum.

It looks like you are using long dashes (called em-dashes, I think) instead of normal dashes in some of your comment tags. For example, look at the second dash of the opening tag and how it’s longer than the first.

<h1>Hello World</h1>

Those long dashes are the problem. I’m not sure what caused this. Are you typing directly into the code editor or copying the code from somewhere else?

I have a hunch that you are using an Apple device and that you have “smart punctuation” turned on. It is converting your dashes to m-dashes. You can turn “smart punctuation” off in your settings.
