Challenge: Learn HTML by Building a Cat Photo App - Step 43

Link to the challenge:

You should add the attribute the same way as it is added into the input element. The difference is that you add the attribute and its value into the opening ‘button’ tag. Pay attention to the first letter of the attribute’s value. It is not the capital letter.

Hey! A word on that.
Attributes, and elements too, are case insensitives, meaning you could write type=“SuBmIt” if you want. But apparently it is advised to use lowercases letters. For obvious reasons :smile:

It is Ok for someone who is experienced and already knows about those little nuances. For the complete beginners it is not the case. That is why the instruction explicitly says: " Add the type attribute with the value submit to the button to make it clear that it is a submit button."

Many mistakes posted on the forum, are solely due to not reading the instruction carefully.

Yes, you are right. I just thought of that nuance as a fun fact. A cool thing to know!
Good luck to you both in your coding adventures :wink:
