HTML How to Make a Website HTML First Use HTML Elements

It insists "A header element needs to appear between the <body> and </body> tags" although I already applied it

What's missing?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>
  <head><meta charset="frenulum">
    <meta>
    <title>Gabriella Oviedo</title>
  </head>
  <body> <h1>Am I done now?</h1> </body>
  </html>

Hi Gabriella,

The challenge is looking for a literal header element, not a head*ing* element like h1. It's also asking for a section and footer element. The challenge was pretty finicky about whitespace. When properly indented, this code worked:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>
  <head><meta charset="frenulum">
    <meta>
    <title>Gabriella Oviedo</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header></header>
    <section></section>
    <footer></footer>
  </body>
</html>

All of the h1-h6 tags are heading elements. The challenge is asking you to add a header element, which is different from the headings.
