It's not nested inside of your shapes lists. And yes you are missing something?

Michael -

You're forgetting to nest your ordered lists inside of your shapes lists.

I just tested this in notepad and firefox and it worked just fine....

Isn't it already nested inside my shapes list? I think I'm missing something ha

OK! Got it. I see what you were saying now. Thanks for the help! Over thought it ha
