Tell us what’s happening:
Can someone please tell me what I’m doing wrong here? It says my html element needs a closing tag even though it is there or how else do I close it?

Your code so far

<!-- User Editable Region -->

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="eng">

Your lang attribute does not match what the challenge is asking for. I would double check that, and see what the lang needs to be

I dont see a closing html tag in your code. A closing tag looks like </> with the element name coming after the slash

I’ve tried all variation I can think of but none of them work. when I do this : ‘ lang=“eng”’ the values inside the element get greyed out. When I do this ‘<html lang=“eng”’ the html in the closing tag becomes red and the code doesn’t pass still, the reason I didn’t put a closing tag before is because I thought html elements are self-closing. Here is what the challenge says; As you’ve seen in the previous projects, webpages should start with a DOCTYPE html declaration, followed by an html element.

Add a DOCTYPE html declaration at the top of the document, and an html element after that. Give the html element a lang attribute with en as its value.

You might have messed up the lang=“eng” part, and you also forgot the closing tag, hope this explanation helps.

I’ve tried all of these none of them work
