Why should there be > tag?

Hi All,
In the below example, why should there be a > tag after “_blank”

Here's a <a href="https://www.freecodecamp.org" target="_blank">link to www.freecodecamp.org</a> for you to follow.

Waiting for reply.

Thank you.

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

HTML tags always start with a < and end with a >. The target attribute, target="_blank", is part of your opening a tag so it needs to be inside the <> .
