"Put two header cells in the table row you just created." - What am I doing wrong?

My code is attached, and the question I'm running into troubles with is in the post title. I've got two table data tag brackets within the row I created in the previous question and I've added text to them - But it reads as incorrect for the question. If anyone could point out where I'm making a mistake I would greatly appreciate it!

Hi there! You are sooooo close on this one. You created the table header just fine. You put a table row in it just fine, but then got caught up on the step where you put header cells inside the row. You used the tag <td>, but <td> is used for data cells. The tag you're looking for is <th> for header cells.

So, if I swap out your <td></td> for <th></th>, your code passes with flying colors!

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Cheers! Noticed the td/th issue when I looked through my notes - got confused thinking thead changed the semantic meaning of td cells to that of th. Thanks for pointing it out ^^
