HTML HTML Forms Form Basics Create a Submit Button

Add a text input with the id attribute set to "name" and the name attribute set to "user_name".

I don't understand what I'm doing wrong here. Isn't the text input in the <form> tag?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <imput type="text" id="name" name="user_name">
    </form>
  </body>
</html>
