Hey Bradley,

I wonder if you did go back and double-check your post, your syntax errors are being highlighted.

HTML tags have it's attributes, we declare it this way:

    <div class="classA"></div>
    <img src="../img/image.png" alt="nice photo" />

go and pick up a nice editor (like sublime text2) will help you a lot.
