Hi, I think I know what's wrong. You have declared that the input type is a button but you have to tell the page that it is a submit button so instead try this.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>HTML Mastery Challenge</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <h1>HTML Mastery Challenge</h1>

    <!-- Write your code below -->
    <div>
      <h2>Shopping List</h2>
      <ol>
        <li>Item 1</li>
        <li>Item 2</li>
        <li>Item 3</li>
      </ol>
      <p>A wild<strong>paragraph</strong>appears.</p>
      <form>
      <input type="text" name="Hello World" value="Hello World">
        <input type="submit" name="mysubmitbutton" value="continue">
      </form>

    </div>
