Why do I keep receiving the error message "Oops! it looks like task 3 is no longer working"?

I've copied and pasted from working code but keep receiving this message when I submit for Task 4. Restarting the browser doesn't work.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
    <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
      <label for="color">Shirt Color:</label>
      <select id="color" name="shirt_color">
        <option value="red">Red</option>
        <option value="yellow">Yellow</option>
        <option value="purple">Purple</option>
        <option value="blue">Blue</option>
        <option value="green">Green</option>
        <option value="orange">Orange</option>
      <label>Shirt Size:</label>
      <label for="small">Small</label>
      <input type="radio" id="small" value="small" name="shirt_size">

      <input type="radio" id="medium" value="medium" name="shirt_size">     
      <label for="large">Large</label>
      <input type="radio" id="large" value="large" name="shirt_size">
      <button type="submit">Place Order</button>

You want the labels for the radio buttons to be after the buttons. Your code is technically semantic but you pretty much always see a label come after the actual radio button.

      <label>Shirt Size:</label>
      <input type="radio" id="small" value="small" name="shirt_size"/>
      <label for="small">Small</label>
      <input type="radio" id="medium" value="medium" name="shirt_size"/>
      <label for="medium">Medium</label>
      <input type="radio" id="large" value="large" name="shirt_size"/>
      <label for="large">Large</label>

The labels need to go after its corresponding radio button for the task to pass.
