Hey Tremayne!

It looks like you need to fix your closing tags for your list items. To fix it, make sure you open and close them like this

<li>Portfolio</li>

When you forget the forward slash "/", they will be treated as new list items, thus more bullet points. :-)

Hi,

As Micah has mentioned you look to be missing the slash from the closing li.

On top of that I noticed that you have the nav and ul inside another nav and ul. You won't need this.

For example, you currently have:

    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <nav><!-- Extra tag not required -->
        <ul><!-- Extra tag not required -->
          <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>
        </ul>
      </nav>
        </ul><!-- Extra tag not required -->
      </nav><!-- Extra tag not required -->
    </header>

You could try changing it to this:

    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <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>
      </ul>
      </nav>
    </header>

Hope that helps :)
