4/21 [resolved] Did you add placeholder="Email" to your email input?

Why can't I get past the placeholder lesson?

<input type="email" placeholder="email">
<input type='submit'>

I get an oops every time I try to place the email in placeholder.

Looking at that error message, I would suggest using a capital E on placeholder="Email"

Can anyone explain why in the second "Email" the "E" has to be capital and in the first its lowercase...?

Hi Roya, f you were writing your own code, the second one, the "Email", that can be anything you want it to be. The writer of this course is insisting on it being "Email" so that they can set the code checker to look for "Email", that way they can tell you are getting your code in the right place. Otherwise they would have no way to guess what you might have put in there.

So in other words we have to type our own email in to where we type "email"?

Hi Neo, no, you don't need to put your own email in.
