An issue Challenge Task 1 of 3 - using the <main>

``` Basic HTML <h2>The Main Articles</h2>
<main> <h3>My Favorite HTML Courses</h3> <p>Fusce semper id ipsum sed scelerisque. Etiam nec elementum massa. Pellentesque tristique ex ac ipsum hendrerit, eget <a href="#">feugiat ante faucibus</a>.</p> </main> <main> <h3>10 CSS Features</h3> <p>Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in faucibus orci luctus et <a href="#">ultrices posuere</a>.</p>
</main> <main> <h3>Follow Me on Social Media:</h3> <ul> <li><a href="#">Twitter</a></li> <li><a href="#">Facebook</a></li> <li><a href="#">LinkedIn</a></li>
</ul> </main>

When doing the challenge, it states to go to each set of <h3> and <p>, which I have.  And it says that I did it wrong.  I also remeber when in the video, it stated that we should only use one <main> per page?  So I am confussed.  Either way I try to do this, it comes up wrong.

Thank you in advance for your help.

You're right about the limitations on <main>, and that's one reason why it is not the correct container element to use for this task.

There's another element which fits the description a bit better, and can be used multiple times on the page.

Also note that the h3/ul combination should not be treated the same as the h3/p groups.

Than you Steven for answering. I was just going to bed when I realized that I could use <article> and it worked.
Thank you again. Tony Tom

I had forgotten about the <article> tag. Used it and worked. This as been answered.
