To span the entire table, the element must cover 2 columns, but the value shown is 0.

There are some other issues as well that might interfere with completing the challenge:

  • there are several stray"<tfooter>" start tags (which is not a valid tag type)
  • there is no ending "</tfoot>" tag to go with the start tag
  • the table footer is overlapping an existing row
