With the ">" symbol missing from the image tag, the paragraph tag that follows is being treated as part of the image tag.

If you look at the syntax coloring you can see that paragraph tag is colored differently from all the other tags because of this.

thank you this is my first time ever seeing or messing with code so its a lil intimidating

so the image tag was interfering

It is great to see others struggle with the same things. There are no perfect coders its a community of people that google for answers to problems. I use to think I was missing something but I'm finding out we are all the same just at different levels of struggling even the most advanced developers ask for help and google all day. Without the internet there would still be just a few languages and basic html for emails. No CSS, Javascript, Rails, etc. The only way this could exist is sharing otherwise you'd have only a few people coding the internet for billions.

Good luck "NEVER QUIT"

thank you

close the image tag (>) <img alt="A picture of me in Spain" src="images/spain.jpg">
