I don't understand what I'm doing wrong and Treehouse won't let me proceed. I've coded the button into the form.

I've also tried coding it just as <button>Submit Comment</button> within the form but that doesn't work either.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>

    <form action="index.html" method="post">

      <input type="text" id="name" name="user_name">
      <textarea id="comment" name="user_comment"</textarea>

      <button type="submit">Submit Comment</button>

The start tag for the textarea element is not complete. It's missing the ">" symbol at the end and before the next tag.

The red color in the syntax highlighting above gives you a clue.
