Classes aren't being recognized

Hey everyone,

I'm having a bit of trouble with this code and I'm not sure why. For some reason, my class links aren't working. The word "class" isn't red and it shows up on my preview page as if were a paragraph or something.

I first noticed when I typed the contact class and decided to test it out since it wasn't red and sure enough, it didn't work. I tried doing the same with the phone number and the class still didn't register

Here's a snippet of my code below:

<section> <h3>General Information</h3> <p>I am currently looking for work. Please, contact me if you're interested in design work</p>

      <p>Please only use phone contact for urgent inquries. </p>
  </section>
  <section>
    <h3>Contact details</h3>
      <ul> class="contact-info">
        <li>class=phone"</li>

    </ul>
  </section>

Exactly. The right version of yours would be:

<section>
    <h3>Contact details</h3>
    <ul class="contact-info"> 
        <li class="phone"></li>
    </ul>
  </section>

The class name has to be typed within the starting tag of the element, not between the starting tag and ending tag.

Correct example:

<p class="some-class"></p>

Incorrect example

<p>class="some-class"</p>
