What happened to the closing </html> tag?

That was my initial response too (the OP has another thread for this).

Then I tried it, and I can’t get this step to pass.

I’ve raised an issue ( #46894) but if you wouldn’t mind trying this step too, I’d appreciate the sanity check.

It passes for me when I add the closing tag.

And after a short break, I’ve realised what both I and the OP were missing.
I got too focused on a closing angle bracket and completely forgot about the closing tag.

Time for me to get out of the forums, make a cup of tea and lie down in a darkened room for a while I think!

But before I do that, I’ll reply to the OP in the other thread.
Is there a way for me to cancel the issue I raised?

You can just close it (button at the bottom).

Sounds cozy.

<html lang="en"


I think you forget the closing angle bracket (>) on your html element.

Hi (again)

I’ve just been looking at your other thread - this seems to be a problem with the test.
I’ve tried two different browsers and I can’t get this to work either.

I think you’ll you’ll just have to move on to the next step.
I’ll raise an issue for the problem.

Thanks to @lasjorg , I’ve realised what we both missed.
Your code needed the html closing tag </html> as well as the opening tag.

I’m really sorry I didn’t spot that.

I merged the two threads.

@mmybsns32 Please do not create duplicate topics for the same question.

Thankyou - it’s closed.

That’s what I’m aiming for!
(And, y’know, not going near a pc for a few hours).
