Hi Ammar,

To do this block content task, we want to use a Django template tag (using the curly brace and percentage sign syntax) rather than an XML tag (we're using Django to identify/denote the block and its content):

{% extends "base.html" %}

{% block content %}
{% for article in articles %}
{{ article.headline }}
{% endfor %}
{% endblock %}

Hope this helps!
