Hard Time seeing the issue with this...

I'm trying to do the third challenge task, I've got the first and second ones right, and I did the third one (setting the third heading to a level 3 header and the text beneath it to a paragraph) and it rejected my code! I'm having a hard time seeing my mistake.

I wrote:

<h3>Level 3 Heading</h3> <p>Cotton candy etc. </p>

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <title>Headings and Paragraphs</title>
    <h1>This is the Main Headline!</h1>
    <p>Oat cake chocolate bar jelly. Tootsie roll cheesecake sweet gummies candy cookie pudding cotton candy carrot cake. Souffl&eacute; caramels brownie oat cake cheesecake.</p>

    <h2>Level 2 Heading</h2> 
    <p>Ice cream candy canes muffin icing pudding muffin jelly topping carrot cake. I love gingerbread dessert jujubes bonbon cupcake tootsie roll I love. Oat cake topping caramels I love cupcake oat cake chocolate topping donut.<p>

    <h3>Level 3 Heading</h3>
    <p>Cotton candy topping halvah sugar plum gummies souffl&eacute;. Ice cream danish donut sugar plum. Macaroon carrot cake gummies. Caramels oat cake chocolate cake.</p>

Hiya Seth! You're very close. You need to close the paragraph tag "<p>" with "</p>" , the one below your <h2> tag. Do that and you're good to go. (:

Ha! Thanks Ari. I found that mistake right when I was done writing this post. :p These forward slashes deserve a medal for the best hide-and-go-seek players.

No worries Seth! And yeah it could be pain in the ass sometimes. Thats why i'd highly recommend ya to use any great IDE coz it close tags for ya and points out to mistakes you may have made during your application development cycle. For front-end developing, i use WebStorm by Jetbrains, but there are many IDEs available like atom or sublime text or VS code. Or you can even use workspaces. Anyways happy coding!(:
