Adam Kmet:

You have a few errors in your code. 1) <title> tag: space between pipe (|) and "Designer." 2) <a href="imf" instead of "img" in all your <a> tags. 3) Extra spaces inside your <p> tags. 4) Visually, you need to move your <li> front tags down to the next line so you can see it & not let it sit next to the previous </li> closing tags.

Correct these errors, save your code changes, the click Preview icon to see if that clears up some problems.
