Code challenge flagging an error incorrectly?

I get an error: "Portfolio list item should link to index.html". The code runs when I create a folder and run from my PC.

<!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> <nav> <ul> <li> <a href="index.html"></a>Portfolio</li> <li> <a href="about.html"></a>About</li> <li> <a href="Contact"></a>Contact</li>

  <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>

</body> </html>

Try moving the word Portfolio to the left a little so its after <li> <a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>

Your challenge is flagging an error because of your anchor closing tag, in order to link each of your list element to the corresponding link, you have to move the anchor closing tag to the end of each list element.

Here is how you should do it:

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