Every house needs a frame ... and I need help


This is my code ( . = < , otherwise it wouldn't show up :confused:):

.!DOCTYPE html>


But it keeps saying:

:rotating_light:Oops, try again. Make sure you put in your open tag!

Can anyone help me?


Your html opening tag is missing, it should be after <!DOCTYPE html>. If you don't remember, you can revisit html basic for a refresher

for next time, use one of the two following options to make your code/indent is visible:

select your code and press ctrl + shift + c (or cmd + shift + c if you use a mac)

if this instructions are unclear, you can also insert 3 backticks before and after your code, like so:


the backtick is located above the tab key on your keyboard


I have an html opening tag... but thanks for the heads up about formatting. :slightly_smiling:


No, you do not, where do you have the html opening tag?


Or do I need another html opening tag?


Ohh... sorry I was confused. I thought that the html in the DOCTYPE tag counted.


yea, you do. You don't have one. After the doctype deceleration:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<!-- html opening tag -->

No, that is the doctype declaration, that is something else then the html opening tag. Seems you figured it out


thanks for your help


you're welcome, one other thing, you can use the format instructions i provided you don't have to remove < from a tag. Actually, two things. The second thing, posting full answers is not according to the guidelines, you may help people by replying to there topic
