Don't know what Im doing wrong. i believe I created the nav and anchor correctly but I keep getting a bummer message.

<nav>

  <ul>
    <li><a herf="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
    <li><a herf="About.html">About</a></li>
    <li><a herf="Contact.html">Contact</a></li>

  </ul>

Message says to link portfolio with index.html.

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>

I think it's just a spelling mistake in the <a href> tag. You wrote herf instead of href

Hi Daniel, I think the problem is the spelling mistake that you did in writing the <a href> tag also u did not end your nav correctly it should be </nav>

Hope this helps..

Thank you all for responding. My inability to locate the error was dyslexic in nature. It seems to occur with just a certain combination of letters. Now that I know, I can deal with it and know what to look for. Thoroughly enjoying my time learning at treehouse.
