Tell us what’s happening:
I am giving meta tag but not getting pass.
**Your code so far**

Link to the challenge:
This tag is left unclosed. This is a self-closing tag, close it and you’ll pass the challenge.
Always remember to close every tags even if they aren’t self-closing.
Also tried that. Not working.
Welcome to the Forums
Your code passes for me try your code in a different browser or in an incognito window.
When working with a self-closing tag, you failed to close the tag. I said “close the tag” but you didn’t do that.
This is an example of an element with an opening and closing tag:
You can see there’s a “/“ backslash in the closing tag.
To close a self-closing tag all you need is include that backslash in the tag without including a closing tag for example:
<tag attribute=“value” />
is a self-closing tag.
The backslash isn’t always needed for a self-closing tag.
Edit: I also edited the post of
@srpallab it looks like he did use a backslash.
In my browser I tried his solution without a backslash and it failed and when I added the backslash it passed so I figured it was a requirement to pass the challenge. I guess there’s a bug somewhere.
The code does pass for me, not sure whether its a prob with my browser now.
Backslash might work for the current problem(maybe), a backslash isn’t always required for self-closing tags, there might be a problem with the tests or the browser.
Yeah this might be the case.
@srpallab try this approach or if you have adBlockers extensions in your browser I strongly advice you disable the adBlockers for freeCodeCamp as they often interfere with the tests.
Hopefully you’ve been able to pass the challenge.
capitalize your “UTF-8”
and use a forward slash/ to close the self closing tag
<meta charset="UTF-8" />
