Code looks different in browser to what is being displayed in video

My code is identical however when I open my html file in Chrome I get something different than to what is displayed in the video. Characters are not hidden in the password field and instead of buttons which can be selected I get two text fields where text can be entered where it says "male" and "female" next to them. Any idea why this could be???

OK Jack, I got it. I copied your code to my sublime and it seems to be the quotes that you are using to wrap the type, name and everything in your code. The right quotes to use is this one: ". Try to copy it and paste in your code. From here probably you will be able to find the properly one on your keyboard. Test it and let me know.
