HTML Treehouse Club: HTML Publish a Story HTML Structure

Your paragraph needs to go between the <body></body> tags error.

Don't know what I am doing wrong.

index.html
<!--This is my TeamTreeHouse WorkSpace Backend editor. Use the <p> tag to start a new paragraph and </p> at the end of each paragraph.-->
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>

  <title>Team Treehouse WorkSpace</title>
  <meta charset="utf-8">

   <style>
    h1 {text-align: center; color: blue}
    h2 {text-align: center; color: red}
 </style>

  </head>
  <body>
  <h1>My Workspace</h1>
    <p> "My first paragraph!" </p>
</body>  
</html>

Hi Edvin, I have noticed that the challenges ask for very specific responses. You may want to eliminate your extra code and go with

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <html>
    <head>
    </head>
    <body>
      <p>My first paragraph!</p>
    </body>  
  </html>

Hope this helps!

Hi Edvin,

Your code is almost perfect. Except, CSS styles should always be written with this general construction:

  h1 {color: blue;}

or, with some indenting:

h1 {
    color: blue;
}

In a couple of your styles you are missing the semi-colon on the end.

All the best,

Ede

Thanks.

Try adding semi-colons after your color CSS declaration:

   <style>
    h1 {text-align: center; color: blue;}
    h2 {text-align: center; color: red;}
 </style>

For some reason I am still getting the same error :( This is what I have thus far with the edits: <!--This is my TeamTreeHouse WorkSpace Backend editor. Use the <p> tag to start a new paragraph and </p> at the end of each paragraph.--> <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head>

<title>Team Treehouse WorkSpace</title> <meta charset="utf-8">

<style> h1 {text-align: center; color: blue;} h2 {text-align: center; color: red;} </style>

</head>

<body> <h1>My Workspace</h1> <p> "My first paragraph!" </p> </body>
</html>

If I do this it tells me to go back to the first step.

Angela Visnesky is correct โ€”ย the challenge did not ask you to fill out the head tag or add an h1 to the body tag. Other than those minor snafus your final code should look something like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head></head>
  <body>
    <p>My first paragraph!</p>
  </body>
</html>
