Quiz says I'm wrong. It says: Create the HTML element that will serve as a document root. I put <html> <html>. ??

Hi Holly

You need to have end tag of HTML with dash "/" inside, then you can do same with other end tags of header, footer, body, div, span, etc

Begin tag - < HTML >

End tag - < /HTML >

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>  // begin tag

</html>  // end tag
