You have a typo in your closing tag. It's the wrong slash.

Hey Steph, you have to put the normal slash for closing "/". Cheers

Hey Stephanie, at Stage 2 of this Challenge, your code should be like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>

As you see in my code, I'm using a forward slash in the closing html tag, not a backward slash. So using the backward slash is your mistake.
