Hi Jessica,

It seems that you've gotten the order and nesting of your elements wrong, but don't worry as it's an easy mistake to make.

Here's how it should look:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Jessica Felicio</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    Body content here
  </body>
</html>

The <body> and <head> elements are two very separate parts of the page, and in your code you had nested the <body, inside of the <head> element. Nesting is very important in HTML, so ensuring you pay close attention to where elements are positioned within your code is a good habit to learn.

Hopefully this helps.

Joe

Thank you sooo soo much! It worked <3

title must be in a head, not in body tag
