Hey Istvan,

You seem to have some duplicate code there. In an HTML document, there can be only one opening/closing <html> tag (there are currently 3), same for <body> (and a few others).

I'm not sure what happened, but if you delete the 2nd line (with <html></html>) and everything after the closing </html> (including your paragraph). Then re-enter the paragraph between the existing <body> tags, you should be good to go.

When you complete all four tasks, there should be 8 lines of HTML text.

Keep Coding! :dizzy:
