ampersand &copy?

Hi there, I am doing a code challenge. The purpose of the challenge is to make a copyright ampersand. The code should look like this: © 2017 (I think). I don`t see why I am getting a bummer when I apply this?

<!DOCTYPE html> 
    <title>My Page</title>
    <h3>Design & Development</h3>
    <p>Contact me at <a href="mailto:haakon.knudsen94@gmail.com">this email</a>.</p>
    <p>&copy; 2017 </p>

Hi there! Actually, you're doing great! But you missed part of the instructions. Your copyright symbol is spot on. However, the challenge also asks you to change the & (ampersand) sign in the <h3> tag 2 lines above it.

I feel certain you can get it with this hint, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkles:

Hi Haakon,

You've only got half the instructions for the task complete, which is why it's not passing. You have the copyright entity correct, but the instruction also want you to replace the ampersand in the <h3>Design & Development</h3> to an HTML entity.

Other than that... Good job. :) :dizzy:
