Few things wrong from what I can see.

1) <!DOCTYPE> doesn't need a closing statement, and you need to declare that you're using HTML in the <!DOCTYPE> tag. Like so: <!DOCTYPE html>

2) After the doctype declaration, you need to have a statement enclosing your Name.

Hope that helps.

Found the solution! The problem is that the first part of the page istructs to add <!DOCTYPE> but the step by step instructions after include adding a . If you follow the instructions to add a the error will come up that doesn't recognize . If you omit the tag then it will work as instructed!
