Doctype isnt accepted.

So, Basicly it doesn't accept my code, I tried this:
<!DOCKTYPE html>

Test123?

    <body>

And This:
<!DOCKTYPE>

Test123?

    <body>

And it doesnt work, Without the ! It shows up as a code, But with it its white.
The error message i get: Oops, try again. Make sure you put in your <!DOCTYPE> tag!

The same thing is happening to me. It will turn red like this but as soon as I put in the exclamation point <!DOCTYPE> it turns white. And then it pops up with the oops error message for the <!DOCTYPE> tag.

as you learend in html basic, the tag you are looking for is not <!DOCTYPE> but <!DOCTYPE html>, if you dont remember, go back to html basic
