Why aren;t my paragraph's being accepted?

Hi Everyone,

So I'm on the lesson titled 'Paragraphs in the Body', and I keep getting the following error message each time I go to submit my code and more onto the next lesson:

Oops, try again. Make sure you write something between each set of <p></p> tags!

Bu this is what the code looks like that I keep trying to submit:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Jesse's Website</title>
</head>

<body>
    <p>This is my first paragraph.</p>
    <p>This is my second paragraph.</p>
</body>    
</html>

both paragraphs are showing up fine in the preview window. Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

So apparently if you just delete all text in between the paragraph tags, it should work. Worked for me. Definitely a bug though.

Decidedly a bug. I even tried directly coping the code from the hint and it didn't work. Yet removing everything between the tags worked just fine.

In order to pass this, you have to incorrectly close the paragraph tags

so instead of :

<p>This is a paragraph</p>

you have to use (without the slash):

<p>This is a paragraph<p>

I am having the same problem; the response back is
"Oops, try again. Make sure you write something between each set of tags!"
Any ideas on how to correct the code and/or fix the problem?

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

<head>
  <title>Webpage 2
  </title>
</head> 

<body>
    <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet. </p>
    <p>The quick brown fox... is kind of cool</p>
  </body>

How do you skip??

Top left there is a "HTML Basics" icon. Approx. two inches to its right is a "06/14" icon. If you click it you will get a drop down menu that will allow you to go to other parts of the tutorial

Yep, it's clearly a bug.
I think someone missed or added an extra "!" somewhere, just do what Doogie up there said.
