Hi @SuperMeaks ,

This is the hint you get :

Hint: Your html element should have a closing tag.


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en"/>

:sweat_smile: not the correct closing tag but Ive tried with / and without it on both lines


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html><lang="en"/>

thought i had it with this

You forgot about closing tags.

HTML elements have an opening tag and a closing tag :

<element> ...  </element>
<head>  <!-- opening tag -->
</head> <!-- closing tag -->

<body>
</body>

ahahaha rookie mistake there.


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en"></html>

I was putting the / in the wrong place for a start haha. Thanks once again for your assistance @spark07
