Looks like you have just a few typos that I made comment lines on below:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
      <meta charset="utf-8'>      <!-- make the quote marks match around utf-8 -->
      <title>DECO<title>         <!-- add forward slash to the end title tag -->
      <style>
          h1 {text aliign: left; color : blue}
      <style>                     <!-- add forward slash to the end style tag -->
  </head>
  <body>
      <h1>richard decosta<h1>    <!-- add forward slash to the end h1 tag -->
      <p>My first paragraph</p>
  </body>
</html>
