Self Closing TAG - Step 4 - Registration Form

On this step is asked to

nest a self-closing link element

From what it is explained in the course some TAG’s are self closed like:

<img src=”...”>

and is only necessary the openning TAG.
However on this step the validation is only possible if you add a “/” at the end of the link element like so:

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css"/>

Until now the “/” was not required for a self closing TAG.
What is the difference?

  **Your code so far**
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Registration Form</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

Hi

There’s a problem with the test for this step, which is being too strict in insisting on the forward slash to close the element.

There’s an open issue for this problem.
