Learn CSS Colors, error in Step 1

The coding requested in Step 1 produces an error despite being entered EXACTLY as it was in the Cafe Menu lessons. What’s not right here?

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

show your code please

Shows in the original post now.

I’ve edited your code for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (').

Do you have a closing html tag?

No, but adding that wasn’t fixing the error. Now, it does. Believe, I tried every possible combination, including this:

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

what’s the link to the step? that seems correct

Your code passes.
Reset the step and try again. If that doesn’t work, refresh the page, disable dark mode, disable ad blockers. Or, use another browser.
If the above steps do not work, you may need to restart the computer.
