having a issue with my "about" and "contact" tabs not being links anymore.

having a issue with my "about" and "contact" tabs not being links anymore.

In the lesson they had me apply a class "selected" to the portfolio tab and "hover" on the other tabs but now the portfolio link works but the about and contact don't.

nav a, nav a:visited { color: #fff; }

nav a.selected, nav a:hover { color: #000; }

body { background-color: #fff; color: #999;


<header> <a href="index.html" id="logo"> <h1>Tyler Stoddard</h1> <h2>Designer</h2> </a> <nav> <ul> <li><a href="index.html" class="selected">Portfolio</a></li> <li><a href="about.html"></a>About</li> <li><a href="contact.html"></a>Contact</li> </ul> </nav> </header>

Looks like the text content for the links is outside the anchor elements. Move the "About" and "Contact" texts inside the anchor elements, so that they come before the closing </a> tags

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