Tips & tricks to HTML Basics

  • Did you spell all your tags correctly?
  • Did you include <body>,<head> and <html> tags?
  • Make sure you remember to close the tags in the right order. They should nest, so the most recent one opened should be the first one closed: {()} rather than {(}).
  • Avoid unnecessary space: move the opening and closing commands on the same line
  • Read the instructions carefully. In order to get the exercise submitted you'll need to have the right order of <H1>s and <p>s.

Think it's a technical error?

Please go through the Troubleshooting Guide.

  • Did you update your browser to the latest verson?
  • Did you clear your cache?
  • Did you make sure you're not accidentally zoomed in/out (click ctrl+0 or cmd+0)?

Can you please clarify what you mean by this?

Avoid unnecessary space: move the opening and closing commands on the same line

They are basically saying keep your tags on the same line, for example


This Is the header /Keep the tags on the same line if possible/

It means you forgot to put one or two or even three of the tags.
