Button not showing up in html form?

I am not sure how to fix this. Everything looks right to me. Maybe someone else can see something I can't.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Ultimate Funding, LLC</title>
    <link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/png" href="favicon.ico"
    <h1>Ultimate Funding, LLC</h1>
    <p>Funding one business at a time</p>
    <form action="project1.html" method="post">
      <h2>Get Business Funding within 24 Hours</h2>
          <label for="email">Email:</label>
          <input type="text" id="email" name="lead_email"><br>
          <label for="name">Name:</label>
          <input type="text" id="name" name="lead_name"><br>
          <label for="company">Company:</label>
          <input type="text" id="company" name="lead_company"><br>
          <label for="phone">Phone#:</label>
          <input type="text" id="phone" name="lead_phone"><br>
          <label for="howmuch">How Much Do You Need?</label>
          <select id="howmuch" name="how_much">

            <optgroup label="Choose Below">
              <option value="select_One">Select One</option>
              <option value="20000">20000</option>
              <option value="30000">30000</option>
              <option value="40000">40000</option>
              <option value="50000">50000</option>
              <option value="60000">60000</option>

        <button type="submit">Apply Now</button>

You've got a couple of syntax errors:

  • the "link" tag is missing the ending ">" symbol
  • the "select" element is missing an end tag

That last one is responsible for concealing the button.

And thanks for fixing up the formatting! :+1:
