You only have end tags.

Tags for most elements must be used in pairs, one start tag and one end tag. Only the end tag has the slash (/) before the name.

Also, there's no tag named "tags".

Following the DOCTYPE, basic HTML structure would generally look like this:

<html>
    <head></head>
    <body></body>
</html>
