Anyone else putting in their angle brackets and having a bummer message calling them quotes instead?

Duplicated the issue twice on two different devices-- one windows and the other my IPhone.

Add more details (or code example) it's hard to know what the problem. Maybe your markup is wrong.

HTML5 Example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
      <title>HTML</title>
  </head>
  <body>
  </body>
</html>

I had <!DOCTYPE.html> for the first line. Then <html></html> for the second line. No quotes. But the bummer message said to do it without quotes. I tried from three different devices--same result.

<!DOCTYPE.html> without dot!! "." (copy and paste my code and check this again)

Thanks, Ezra. I actually figured that out and forgot to acknowledge. My bad.
