Anchor tag within list should be like this:

<li><a href="example.html">example</a></li>

Hmm, thats weird I tried to post it in the batsticks. Hahha I just figured out what a backstick is :P. Here is the code

          <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>

If this is your code, you're doing it right.

Man I am very confused then. Tried it again today and it wouldn't work. Must be an issue with the site. Thank you for your help!
