Challenge: Step 4

Link to the challenge:

It is styles.css not style.css.
You have to put a slash(/)before the closing > because the tests are a bit strict. You have also given a text attribute instead of a type attribute.

That slash (/) tip helped me. thanks.

Hey, I do not understand why I have to put slash(/) before the closing >. I wrote the same code for previous test -without using slash- and it passed.

I have the same question. I have also been checking other online sources, and none of these include the (/) in the normal syntax for self-closing elements.

makes one wonder if the slash is really an error or if it is necessary
