Problem with Jinja2 "unknown tag endblock"


I am getting an error for "TemplateSyntaxError", and it says "Encountered unknown tag 'endblock'."


<!doctype html>
        <title>{% block title %}{% endblock %}</title>
            { % block content %}{% endblock %}
            <p>Brought to you by the fine folks at Treehouse!</p>



{% extends "layout.html" %}

{% block title %}Howy!{% endblock %}

{% block contect %}
<h1>Hello From {{name}}!</h1>
{% endblock %}

I think I found it, there was a space in my layout.html codes before "%". { % block content %} --> {% block content %}
