Hi there! You're not really doing anything wrong per se, but you only made it about halfway through the instructions, Also, you don't need to remove the 2017 that was there.

You changed the copyright symbol, but you also need to change the ampersand & inside the <h3> element 2 lines above it. You seem to have a pretty good handle on HTML entities and I believe you can get it with this hint, but let me know if you're still stuck! :sparkles:

Hi again! No, it does not. As mentioned in my answer, you do not need to remove the original text that was already there, rather simply replace the copyright and ampersand symbols. In both cases, you have removed the original text.

<!-- Your h3 should look like this -->
<h3>Design &amp; Development</h3>

<!-- Your last paragraph should look like this -->
 <p>&copy 2017</p>

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
