Set up your HTML document with the <!doctype> and <html> tags. Question
I answered as following:
<!DOCTYPE.html> <html> </html>
I get a message saying, "Bummer: Your DOCTYPE should be "html" (without quotes).
I am not understanding what is wrong here...
That error message isn't helpful, but your code is not correct. A more appropriate error would be:
unknown declaration type "DOCTYPE.HTML"
Let me know if this helps here
This should do:
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Hello World!</title> </head> <body> <p>You were mistaken on HTML doctype declaration. Musts for the html tags are head and body. Just like a human. Hope this helps. Best...</p> </body> </html>
