You only have end tags.

Tags for most elements must be used in pairs, one start tag and one end tag. Only the end tag has the slash (/) before the name.

Also, there's no tag named "tags".

Following the DOCTYPE, basic HTML structure would generally look like this:

<html>
    <head></head>
    <body></body>
</html>

like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="utf-8" /> <title></title> </head> <body>

</body>

</html>

Or Halifa — when posting code, always use the instructions for code formatting in the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below the "Add an Answer" area. :arrow_heading_down:

Also, Treehouse discourages posting code answers without explanations.
