Your textarea is not complete — it's missing the end tag. Unlike an "input" which has no end tag, the "textarea" element requires an end tag.
Unless you accidentally removed it, the previous challenge step may have given you a pass without it. If that's the case, you may want to submit a bug report to Support.
