"Bummer: Don't put your <html> tag before the <!DOCTYPE html>" But I put the <html> tag after the type.

I am receiving the following error but my <html> tag is after the <!DOCTYPE html>

index.html
<!--This is me opening the code with a new html as the doctype-->
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
</html>

The instructions don't ask for a comment, and it seems to confuse the validator. You should leave that out.

In general, you'll get best results with the challenges if you do only what they ask for.
