Bug in workspace?

It says to add a list item called 'Portfolio', which I have done. But I get an error message asking me to add a list item called 'Portfolio'.

I can't get past this step!

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html"></a>
      <nav>
        <ul>Portfolio</ul>
        <ul>About</ul>
        <ul>Contact</ul>
      </nav>
          <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>

    </header>

    <section></section>

  </body>
</html>

It's not a bug, the list you created is not coded properly. When you make an unordered list, you wrap the whole list in < ul > tags and then have each item wrapped in a list-item tag < li >.

<ul>
    <li>Portfolio</li>
    <li>About</li>
    <li>Contact</li>
</ul>
