Your DOCTYPE should be "html" (without quotes)

I´m rusty and can´t understand this. How should I move on?

index.html
<!doctype>
<html>
  <head> </head>
  <body> </body>

</html>

Luckily the html5 doctype is easy enough to remember once you use it a few times. But actually, you’re very close.

<!doctype html>

You’ve got the doctype and the second html element but you also add html to the doctype as mind of like a keyword. It’s an attribute but it has no assigned value.
