Nevermind. This was an issue with the firefox browser. I copy and pasted everything after opening safari and it all worked out without changes.

Ok I've tried closing the link with a /> now but it didn't resolve the problem. Now I just skipped it and went on to the next exercise but still receive the same error message here:

We can't know what your error is without the code. Be more specific and include your code.

Ok, I see the code now in your screenshot that you linked. The code is correct. Try manually resetting the zoom in your browser to 100%. There's a bug with codeacademy that prevents things from working when the zoom is not set to 100%. Don't use the keyboard shortcuts (command-0, etc), manually set the zoom in your browser by clicking it. Should be under the "view" menu.

It is really hard to tell what is wrong from a image.

Sorry doesn't look like you can format a comment. Added it as an answer below:

<!DOCTYPE html>

weird, you indeed seem to have a glitch. Try a different browser, or clear cache and refresh page.
