Code Academy asks me to close the link tag although it is a self closing tag, and I can't pass to the next lesson


Replace this line with your code.


Can you post your code? You need to add a forward slash (/) at the end of your <link> (<link <!-- attributes here --> />)


<!DOCTYPE html>
		<!--Add your link tag here!-->
		<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css">
		<h1>Change me to Verdana.</h1>
		<h3>Change me to Courier.</h3>
		<p>Make me purple!</p>


in this lesson xml syntax is required:

<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css" />

see the slash i added at the end of the link


Thanks, it works now
