I need some help please. It's been awhile since I've had to do any coding at all and I'm doing something wrong. I hope someone can tell me what. The following is a part of an article that the website tool is telling me I am doing wrong. It has this section of the article highlighted.The problem is with the <a href> tag-- it's telling me there's a beginning to the code but no end. I have the </a> and I thought it might mean the <head> code but it says the first few paragraphs is ok and I don't think we are required to type in those codes--only where we what our paragraphs and things like that. So I'm stumped.

The reason greater flexibility and convenience. Cooktops are easier to incorporate into an island and you can face any direction you wish, rather than a wall. Wall ovens can be positioned at eye level and offer the option of more than one, a plus if you like to entertain, love to bake or cook meals to freeze and reheat for the coming work week. They can also be placed in any cabinetry, including an island; where ever it is most convenient.<p>All three cooktop types--gas, electric or induction-- can offer excellent performance. Electric cooktops tend to heat the pan, and hence the food, faster than gas. Induction is faster than both. Electric smooth top models are easy to clean, but can be damaged by dropped pans or spilled food. Gas cooktops are more durable, but harder to keep clean. For wall ovens, look for a covered baking element to catch drips and spills, electronic touch pad controls, an oven window without grids, a self-cleaning cycle, temperature probe and adjustable variable broil.</P><P></p><a href=”http://www.consumersearch.com/cooktops”>Cooktop Ratings and Reviews</a><br><a href=”http://www.consumersearch.com/wall-oven-reviews”>Wall Ovens Ratings and Reviews</a> <p><b>French Door Refrigerator, Side by Side, Freezer Up, Freezer Down?</B><br> When shopping for a refrigerator, always look for Energy Star for good reason: The refrigerator is probably the only appliance in the kitchen that runs 24 hours a day.<p> That said America's favorite seems to be the freezer on the bottom, refrigerator at eye level model, with the French door option having the edge. Some of these offer an extra drawer between the fridge and the freezer. Although you have to bend to reach the freezer, the refrigerator is used far more often.</p><p>Look for models with slide-out glass shelves, separate temperature controls for various compartments, and stainless steel.</p><p><a href=”http://www.consumersearch.com/refrigerators”>Refrigerator Ratings and Reviews</a></p><p><b>Dishwasher</b><br> There's a wide array of models and types of dishwasher, and some of those with the highest price tags are really no better than the less expensive models. Most, if not all, are less expensive to use than washing by hand. Dishwasher drawers are tempting, and in some cases are handy, but in general they use more energy and water than other models, without cleaning better.<p> Stainless steel tubs sound better, but even plastic tubs usually last longer than the rest of the dishwasher.</p><p>Look for adjustable racks and other features that make loading easier.</p><p> If you frequently run the dishwasher with a half load of dishes or sometimes only wash pots and pans or glasses, look for a model with a half load option. You will save energy and water. Do look for a model with a dirt sensor, this handy money-saver adjusts the length of the cycle and the amount of water depending on how dirty your dishes and pans are.</p><p>Filters keep bits of food from being redeposited on your glasses and dishes. Most are self-cleaning, but make a lot of noise; others are quieter, but need to be cleaned by hand.</p><p> If you don't run the dishwasher until you have a full load, look for a model with a rinse/hold cycle that rinses the dishes so food doesn't dry or cause odors while you are collecting enough dishes to make a full load.</p><p>Some models come with many special cycles--like sanitizing, steam, china, etc.--but the basic three--light, normal and heavy--are generally enough even for baked on food.</p><p><a href=”http://www.consumersearch.com/dishwasher-reviews”>Dishwasher Ratings and Reviews</a></p>
