Hi need help with this instruction in my HTML Forms lesson: 'Add a submit button with the text "Place Order".'

I've entered the button element as follows and feel it should work given I have nested it within the Form elements and the syntax is exactly like what i have in Workspaces - which works:

<button type="submit">Place Order</button>

Can you please share where I'm going wrong?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
  </head>
  <body>

    <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
        <label for="color">Shirt Color</label>
        <select id="color" name="shirt_color">
          <option value="red">Red</option>
          <option value="yellow">Yellow</option>
          <option value="purple">Purple</option>
          <option value="blue">Blue</option>
          <option value="green">Green</option>
          <option value="orange">Orange</option>
          <button type="submit">Place Order</button>
    </form>

  </body>
</html>

Ah I found out

You will need to close your </select> tag (element?) and it will work.

I did the same thing. Is there a bug in 'check work'?
