Tables code challenge help?

Can't seem to pass the code challenge for the tables section- the challenge is asking me to put some text inside of my table body row, so I did this:

<tbody> <tr> <td>table body row</td> <td>please work!</td> </tr> </tbody>

I am pretty sure this is correct but also the <tbody> tag was not mentioned in the video I am pretty sure.

I can't get past this, I'm not sure if there's a better answer.

Are you using the <tbody> tags, I went back to see what all the challenge was and after the <thead></thead> bit you put the tbody under that section and fill it up with a normal <tr><td>text goes in the td's</td></tr> stuff... just remember to close the tbody too!

I'm not sure what code you're using, but to get text inside a table cell there are 3 tags. It looks like this:

        <td>Your text goes here</td>

Hope this helps!
