Hi Dwayne Pinney

You have all the correct entities, but you deleted part of the pre-loaded HTML, and the challenge doesn't like that.

You'll need to restart the challenge. This time only add the mailto:example@mail.com inside the quotation marks, and do not delete or alter anything else on that line. This will pass task 1.
Then just redo the entities that you have and task 2 will pass.

Note to remember: Instructions for tasks are very specific and always need to be followed exactly. Unless explicitly instructed to do so, never alter or delete any of the pre-loaded snippets. This will almost always cause the challenge to fail, even if it works correctly locally.

Nice work! :) :dizzy:

Thank you
