HTML Basics 10/14

On this part of the tutorial it keeps telling me to add the href even though i already have. Not sure what the problem is. If anyone else can help or is having the same problem let me know.

You do as the example tells you, except you must type in

codeacademy<
for the description.
With no space between
Example:
Potato<
Bad Example:
Goodbye <

@ajaxplayer, you can add the href to the existing <a> element so you get this:

<body>
<a href="http://www.codecademy.com"> codecademy</a>
</body>

@roger, your link has a total incorrect syntax, it should be:
<a href="http://www.codeacademy.com">codecademy</a>

peek back at earlier exercises to remember syntax/look at documentation.
