I cannot figure out why my code is not accepted: <button type="submit">Place Order</button>
The error I am getting states that I have not placed a button within the form tags, however this line of code is between the tags. The button does not appear on the preview and I'm at a loss as to why that is.
<!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>

Hi there, Jillian Anderson Slate ! First, you're doing terrific. Yes, your
<button> is inside your
<form> tags, but you forgot something very minor here. You started your
<select> menu and put in the options, but you never closed it with
</select>. Long story short: you're missing a
</select>, but I will leave the placement of this up to you.
Hope this helps!
