Describe your issue in detail here.
I’M just currently stuck trying to understand the requirements and implementing them particularly the fig caption.

    <figcaption id="img-catption">Dr. Norman Borlaug, third from the left, trains biologists in Mexico on how to increase wheat yields - part of his life-long war on hunger.</figcaption>
      <h2 id="headline">Here's a time line of Dr. Borlaug's life:
      <section id="tribute-info">
        <li><strong>1914</strong>Born in Cresco, Iowa</li>
        <li><strong>1933</strong> Leaves his family's farm to attend the University of Minnesota, thanks to a Depression era program known as the "National Youth Administration"</li>
        <li><strong>1935</strong> Has to stop school and save up more money. Works in the Civilian Conservation Corps, helping starving Americans. "I saw how food changed them", he said. "All of this left scars on me."</li>
        <li><strong>1937</strong>Finishes university and takes a job in the US Forestry Service</li>
        <li><strong>1938</strong>Marries wife of 69 years Margret Gibson. Gets laid off due to budget cuts. Inspired by Elvin Charles Stakman, he returns to school study under Stakman, who teaches him about breeding pest-resistent plants.</li>
        <li><strong>1941</strong>Tries to enroll in the military after the Pearl Harbor attack, but is rejected. Instead, the military asked his lab to work on waterproof glue, DDT to control malaria, disinfectants, and other applied science.</li>
        <li><strong>1942</strong> Receives a Ph.D. in Genetics and Plant Pathology</li>
        <li><strong>1944</strong> Rejects a 100% salary increase from Dupont, leaves behind his pregnant wife, and flies to Mexico to head a new plant pathology program. Over the next 16 years, his team breeds 6,000 different strains of disease resistent wheat - including different varieties for each major climate on Earth.</li>
        <li><strong>1945</strong>Discovers a way to grown wheat twice each season, doubling wheat yields</li>
        <li><strong>1953</strong>crosses a short, sturdy dwarf breed of wheat with a high-yeidling American breed, creating a strain that responds well to fertilizer. It goes on to provide 95% of Mexico's wheat.</li>
        <li><strong>1062</strong>Visits Delhi and brings his high-yielding strains of wheat to the Indian subcontinent in time to help mitigate mass starvation due to a rapidly expanding population</li>
        <li><strong>1970</strong> receives the Nobel Peace Prize</li>
        <li><strong>1983</strong>helps seven African countries dramatically increase their maize and sorghum yields</li>
        <li><strong>1984</strong> becomes a distinguished professor at Texas A&M University</li>
        <li><strong>2005</strong>states "we will have to double the world food supply by 2050." Argues that genetically modified crops are the only way we can meet the demand, as we run out of arable land. Says that GM crops are not inherently dangerous because "we've been genetically modifying plants and animals for a long time. Long before we called it science, people were selecting the best breeds."</li>
        <li><strong>2009</strong>dies at the age of 95.</li>

Challenge: Tribute Page - Build a Tribute Page

Link to the challenge:

these are the points im still failing the test on and trying to understand …

Your #img-div , #image , #img-caption , #tribute-info , and #tribute-link should all be descendants of #main .?

  • ou should have a figcaption or div element with an id of img-caption.

  • Failed:Your #img-caption should be a descendant of #img-div.

  • You should have an a element with an id of tribute-link.

  • Failed:Your #tribute-link should have an href attribute and value.

  • Failed:Your #tribute-link should have a target attribute set to _blank.

You need a closing tag for h2 here

If there are any other errors like this they will cause the tests to fail.

Edit: looks like you are also missing the html tag’s closing tag.

Also the link element should be defined inside the head element outside of the main tag. (You may want to revise some of what you learned about html files in the curriculum such as adding a doctype element etc)
