<h1>Welcome to my homepage<h1>. I put the wrong ending tag. What is the correct ending tag? Do all tags end the same way
I took the quiz and I got this question wrong. I want to know what the correct ending tag would be for this line of text and if all tags when coding have to end the same.

Most elements will have a closing tag. A closing tag uses a backslash ("/") before the tag name (e.g. h1). Those elements that do not have a closing tag are usually called a "self-closing element/tag" or "empty element".
Example of a element that uses an opening and closing tag:
<h1>This is an element that uses an opening and closing tag</h1>
Example of a self-closing element/tag:
<img> <!-- This is an element that uses a self-closing tag -->
You can also define a self-closing element/tag like this:
<img /> <!-- You can optionally use the backslash to clearly indicate that this element is a self-closing tag/empty element. -->
