JavaScript Treehouse Club - MASH MASH - HTML Thinking With Your Head

Just doing MASH the game. I duplicate her work and it says doctype has to be above the <head>??

I'm just starting the MASH game. HTML part first. Her example shows the head above doctype. When I do the worksheet checker says the head has to be within the doctype. Not above as shown. Still when I out the head on top I couldn't get it to work

index.html
<head>
  <!DOCTYPE> 
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>Futuristic MASH</title>
  <h1>Futuristic MASH</h1>
  <link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet">
  <p> Directions to play the game: </p>
</head>

Doctype should always go first and shouldn't be in the <head> tag. This is how a standard page is marked up:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>

    </head>
    <body>

    </body>
</html>

The h1 tag and p tag shouldn't be in the <head> either, does this help?

Edit: The question is asking you to delete elements that don't belong in the <head>, so the answer would be:

<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>Futuristic MASH</title>
  <link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet">
</head>

The instructions are to DELETE everything that doesn't belong. Consider the bummer message as information on what to delete.

Ahh geesh thanks! That helps a lot. Duh.
