Hello Andrew,

Looking your code I see you got 2x table tag, its should be just 1.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Tables</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <table>
      <tr>
        <td>Name</td>
        <td>Job</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Test 1</td>
        <td>Test 2</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Test 3</td>
        <td>Test 4</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Test 5</td>
        <td>Test 6</td>
      </tr>
    </table>
  </body>
</html>

Hey.

Maybe /td and not td/. And why you put a table inside of another?
