Character Set

Hello! I'm attempting to complete the challenge of setting the character set and have put in the following, but am told it is incorrect:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">

It keeps telling me that it is incorrect and that I need to add an attribute to the character set which I already have: "utf-8"

Hi Nicole, I think you need to include the <body> element in the <html> tag as well.
