Stuck on Html forms again... please help.

What am I missing or doing wrong? I've tried writing the code in many different ways including the way we were shown to do it in workspaces during the lesson. Please help me so I can move on from this challenge task. Thanks.

Error mesage says:

Bummer: You need to add an <input> element with a type of "checkbox" and an id of "newsletter" within the <form> element.

The instructions said "Don't add any labels or line breaks yet.", but that wouldn't actually cause an issue in itself. The challenge doesn't see the new checkbox because it is inside a label element started on the previous line:

...<label for="shipping"><label>Fast Shipping</label><br>

Note that there are two start tags on the line, but only the inner one ends.
