<body> <ul> <a href="cakes.html"><l

It continually says that I need to make the href attribute of the second a element "pies.html"

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lists and Links</title>
    <a href="cakes.html"><li>Cakes</li></a>
    <a href="pies.html"><li>Cakes</li></a>
    <a href="candy.html"><li>Candy</li></a>

The links ("a" elements) should be inside the list items ("li" elements), not vice-versa.

A good rule to remember is that all direct child elements of a ul or ol should be li's.

Wow, I had no idea that would make a difference. I'm glad I made this mistake because your rule of thumb makes a lot of sense when you think about it. Thanks for the help!
