Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong here?

On one of the quiz questions, it says to: Link each of the three list items. Portfolio should go to “index.html”, About should go to “about.html”, and Contact should go to “contact.html”

So I did the following:

<ul>
    <li><a href=”index.html”><a/></li>
    <li><a href=”about.html”><a/></li>
    <li><a href=”contact.html”><a/></li>
</ul>

...and it told me it is incorrect. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong here? Thx!

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
    </header>
    <section></section>
    <footer>
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

Hi!!

at first glance I see that you are closing the anchor tag incorrectly here is the correction:

<ul> <li><a href="index.html"></a></li> <li><a href="about.html"></a></li> <li><a href="contact.html"></a></li> </ul>

I hope this helps!!!

So it should be as follows?

<ul> <li><a href=”index.html”><a/> <li><a href=”about.html”><a/> <li><a href=”contact.html”><a/> </ul>

Hi Eric,

the closing anchor should be the following

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

You've closed your links incorrectly; it should be:

</a>

not

<a/>

That should fix it up for you.

Got it! Thx!!! I had my "/" in the wrong place!
