HTML HTML Forms Form Basics Create a Submit Button

After the textarea, create a button element. Between the button tags, write the text "Submit Comment".

in Challenge Task 4 of 5 I keep getting an error message for adding a button. From what I can see my code is correct

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <form action="index.html" method="post">
          <input type="text" id="name" name="user_name">
          <textarea id="comment" name="user_comment">
            <button type="submit">Submit Comment</button>
   </form>  
  </body>
</html>

You forgot the ending tag for your text area.

Unlike an input element, a text area has both start and end tags. You omitted the ending </textarea> tag.
