Not sure what the question is asking in HTML forms challenge, question #7.

It's asking to "Set the text input to contain "Hello world". Don't recall seeing anything like this in the videos. Have all other tasks completed.

hey marshall, the input element is a self-closing tag - so something like /input doesn't exist which also means you can't put text in between.

but it can use some attributes. in fact at step 6 (that you already passed) you added type=text to it which is one of the attributes. now to move on and add the "hello world" we can add another attribute to the input element. this time a value attribute.

after doing so the line should look like this at the end:

<input type="text" value="Hello World">

hope that helps and have a nice day ;)
