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!
