I need help with my quiz. I'm not sure if it is glitching or if I am truly getting it wrong.

<!DOCTYPE.html> <html></html>

It says I need to have an html Doctype. This is my work what am I doing wrong?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE.html>
<html></html>

So close! You don't need the period between !DOCTYPE and html. :)

Hi Niki Moon,

You won't believe how close you are...
Change that period to a space in the doctype statement and you're there!

Keep going and happy coding :dizzy:
