Hi Deirdre,

It looks as though some of your starting and closing tags are in the wrong order.

It should look something like the below:

<form action="index.html" method="post">
      <fieldset>
         <legend>Tell us about yourself?</legend>
         <label for="name">Name:</label>
         <input type="text" id="name" name="user_name">
         <label for="email">Email:</label>
         <input type="email" id="email" name="user_email">
      </fieldset>
      <fieldset>
        <legend>What's on your mind?</legend>
        <label for="comment">Comment:</label>
        <textarea id="comment" name="user_comment"></textarea>
      </fieldset>
      <button type="submit">Submit Comment</button>
    </form>

Additional problem is that as per the previous instruction we have to add a fieldset to the email input. So the second fieldset is around email and not around the textarea. But the task only passes if we add the legend to the fieldset around the textarea which is the 3rd and not the second fieldset. Long story short, I believe the challenge is wrong.
