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...

the way you setup your html document should look like so

   <!DOCTYPE html>
   <html>

  </html>

<!DOCTYPE.html> is wrong it has to be <!DOCTYPE html>

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>
