So please put the closing html tag after this opening tag. Closing tags are written with a backslash before the tagname. Something like this </tagname>.

Thank you for your help. What I didn’t realize having taken a break from practicing was that closing tags aren’t just the > but require <> </> after the opening tag.
The solution I was looking for was:

A closing tag should look like this:

</html>

without any spaces. Space was included so code would appear in text.

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 (').
