Your input field should look like this: <input type="text" value="Hello World"> Plus, delete the "Hello World" you wrote behind the closing >. It doesn't belong to anywhere, it's just floating around in your document as it's not enclosed by any tags. An input element doesn't really have text content like an h1 or p element between two tags, its content is given to it with the attribute "value". As you might have noticed, <input> elements don't have a closing tag, either (nor do they need it).
