HTML Syntax error
I got an error but my code is correct... I don't understand what's happening?
<!-- This is a new HTML file --> <!DOCTYPE html> <html> </html>
Post you html comment after doctype it may resolve

Hi there! Your code isn't wrong, but the comment is causing the challenge to fail on step 2. Oddly enough, it doesn't cause step 1 to fail. Code challenges can be very strict and it's always best to try not to do anything they haven't explicitly asked for. Simply remove the comment and continue the code challenge.
