Hi Corey,

To pass this task you need to do the following:

  1. Add the textarea closing tag before the button element.
  2. Add the form closing tag after the button element.
  3. Remove the extra ">" after the button closing tag.

This should allow you to pass, please see the code I used if you are still unsure:

<!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">
      </textarea>
      <button>Submit Comment</button>
    </form>
  </body>
</html>

Hope this helps! Happy Coding!!!
