Make sure you use " " these symbols and not `` this or any other. I think that will fix your problem. Use quotes next to the enter key.

id="main-footer"

Tom is right. You are using curly or fancy quotes (which I think are the default on a phone). You need to use straight quotes to pass the challenge.

Thank you for the feedback. I think it’s a glitch with the iPads with chrome requesting desktop view. Weird...

Not sure. In index.html I changed the double quotes around main-footer to single quotes and it passed.

I was using my iPad with desktop view and it was giving me an error. After switching to my laptop, the code was fine. I thought I was going crazy because I know the code I entered was correct. Lol
