Pretty sure this is right

Tell us what’s happening:
pretty sure this is correct, but it won’t accept.

hint says: “Your link element should be a self-closing element.”

Describe your issue in detail here.
I tested this code in visualstudio and it shows no errors. pretty sure it’s right, but it won’t accept it.
I have had this happen about 4 times now but usually refreshing or switching browsers for the step fixes it. nothing is working now. I have no extensions on firefox.

  **Your code so far**

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Registration Form</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css">
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

Challenge: Step 4

Link to the challenge:

You have to add an extra backslash before the closing >

But, as far as I can tell that is only necessary in XML. This exercise should be in HTML5. I don’t understand why it is required here.

the tests are unnecessarily strict and are in the process of being fixed

Oh, ok. thank you. I’m pretty sure the extra “/” was never mentioned in previous lessons. I had to find the info about it on my own, trying to figure out what was wrong. I appreciate the insight.
