I don't understand how to type the closing tag

Please help

Hey Jakub, you type closing tags by typing a forward slash before the tag in the brackets. It looks like this: </div> or </body> Just remember, some tags are self closing tags, meaning that they don't need a closing tag, only the opening tag. They look like this: <img>

Hope this helped!

most but not all html tags follow the

<> </>


like for a paragraph tag

<p> Your text here </p>

there are some instances where there is just a single tag like link or meta

<link href="" rel="" type"" />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html"; charset="UTF-8" />

Hope that answers your question, if not please be more specific


Thank You very much, I find your answer really helpful! I think that's enough learning for one day. Have a nice day :)
