:point_right: It's a comment — you can put it anywhere.

As long as it's properly formatted, placement won't matter. It will not appear on the page, and it will not affect, or be affected by, any of the tags in the document.

You just cannot place a comment inside a tag, as you might place an attribute.

The challenge says "put a comment at the top of the page", so I think you need to put it above the <!DOCTYPE> tag.

The <!DOCTYPE html> is the first tag in your index. html document after that comes the opening tag <html>

the closing tag </html> will be the last tag in your document. all other tags will come in between. <html> and </html>
