"Tags must be paired or missing" & "Special Characters Must be Escaped"


#1


My code seems to be working fine, however I continue to receive 2 error messages.
1st message: "Special characters must be escaped" on line 18 "< a" is highlighted as well is the closing ">" after the href URL.

2nd Message:"Tag must be paired or missing" on line 19 the < is highlighted as if the < / body> doesn't correctly close out the initial < body>.

Your ul tag is not closed :slight_smile:

Thank you!

That helped the < /body> error.

I was continuing to get the line 18 error, however after a fresh glance, I noticed there was no "space" between the href URL and target= After putting a space back in, that seemed to solve the other error. Not sure why, but it worked.

There's meant to be a space, computers are fussy they need the code clean and tidy :wink:
