HTML HTML Basics Images, Text and Links Text Level Elements Challenge

Use the element that displays text in italic to add emphasis to the words "HTML Basics". I can't just use the <i> tag?

I'm not sure what to add. I know the strong tag adds emphasis, but not by making it Italic. Not sure what to do!

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html> 
<html>
  <head>
    <title>HTML Text</title>
  </head>
  <body>

Hi there,

While the <i> tag does make text italic, the challenge says "emphasis", so it's going to be picky about how you go about it. It's looking for the <em> tag (emphasis).

There's an explanation of the semantic difference between <i> and <em> here, if you're interested.

Yay thank you!!!! That was too simple.

You're welcome!

Use the <em></em> tags in this example.
