Simple Task not being check properly by checker?

I submitted my style tag and when the checker checks my work, it gives me a 'Bummer? Don't forget the style tag error' even though the style tag is clearly in the code. How do I fix code checker?

Hi Marc Balestreri -

If you can post your code that you've tried then someone can take a look at it.

Hi Marc, double check if you closed the tag, and if you did close is did you close it correctly.

So many times I faced the issue of a missing forward slash in my closing tag, so for example if you are trying to create a 'p' tag:

<p>this is my paragraph</p>
<!-- make sure you have an opening tag and a closing tag and that all of the correct content is with in the right tag -->

Let me know if that helped :)

Hi, the error at the time was that the style tag was not within the body tag. Which led the code checker to give me that response. The style tag still worked - both inside and outside of the body tag - when you run the code and view the page, just that the checker didn't like that.
