Hi Moises,

The issue lies with your textarea element, in all versions of HTML this element isn't self-closing therefore we need to explicitly declare the closing tag in order for our HTML to be valid, please see the below for the corrected HTML.

<form action="index.html" method="post">
  <input type="text" id="name" name="user_name"/>
  <textarea id="comment" name="user_comment"></textarea>
   <button>Submit Comment</button>
</form>

Happy coding!
