Hi Isabella,

You're close, but the closing </head> needs to come right after the opening one and before the opening <body> tag. The complete enclosing <head></head> will contain information about the document, but is not part of the document, so the <body> cannot be enclosed in the <head>. :)

Keep Coding! :dizzy:

oooooooooh. Thank you!
