The head, body, and closing html tags are missing

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>Kevin | student</title>
  <p>stuff will go here.</p>
  <p>&copy; 2014 kevin student</p>

This is the standard HTML 5 layout

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">


Kevin, please mark this question as answered. Thanks ;p

at the end of charset
