Special characters must be escaped [,]

In Introduction to HTML, my video code has worked and passed, but it shows this message.
“special characters must be escaped [,]”

Can someone tell me what this means and where I have gone wrong.
Code below.

You have some unusual version of " in your code. Half are regular " and the other half are “

I replaced the weird ones with normal ones and it worked fine. I think you may have added them when copy and pasting from the instructions.

I am assuming the message is appearing in relation to that section of code.


That makes sense. Thanks!
