Both the input and textarea start tags are incomplete. The tags should end with a ">" character.

Also, an input element is defined entirely by the start tag, it has no end tag. So there's no such thing as "</input>".

And for the button, it looks like you created a "text" property but the instructions say to put the text "between the tags".

Thank you so much for the assistance, I’ll be on a better look out for small typos and errors
