Challenge 8: Create another table cell that spans two columns

I have done this. it's actually quite easy. However, it does not specify if it's supposed to be inside the <tbody> tag, before, after, or in or outside any other tag. Therefore I cannot pass the challenge. Does anyway have the answer? Thanks!

Try this:

<tr><td>Lorem ipsum</td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="2">Lorem ipsum</td></tr>

That code worked. I was doing the exact same thing but it wasn't passing. I just had different text, then tried with no text.

Anyhow, Thanks so much Christian!

It was the last challenge on tables in html
