Having trouble using the "section" element.

The challenge is asking me to wrap the h2, p, and ul items in a "section" element. The only hint it is giving me is to make sure "the element is between in the header and footer."

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <title>My Portfolio</title>
  </head>
  <header>
    <body>
      <ul>
        <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Work</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>            
      </ul>

      <h1>My Web Design &amp; Development Portfolio!</h1> 
      <p>A site featuring my latest work.</p>


      <section>
        <h2>Welcome</h2> 
        <p>Fusce semper id ipsum sed scelerisque. Etiam nec elementum massa. Pellentesque tristique ex ac ipsum hendrerit, eget feugiat ante faucibus.</p>
        <ul>
          <li><a href="#">Recent project #1</a></li>
          <li><a href="#">Recent project #2</a></li>
          <li><a href="#">Recent project #3</a></li>     
        </ul>
      </section>
      <footer>
        <p>&copy; 2017 My Portfolio</p>
        <p>Follow me on <a href="#">Twitter</a>, <a href="#">Instagram</a> and <a href="#">Dribbble</a></p>
      </footer>
  </body>
  </header>
</html>

Hi there,

Looks like something's gone a little wrong with your HTML structure: your header tag actually wraps the body tag. A few tweaks and it'll work:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <title>My Portfolio</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <ul>
        <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Work</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>            
      </ul>
    </header>

    <h1>My Web Design &amp; Development Portfolio!</h1> 
    <p>A site featuring my latest work.</p>

    <section>
      <h2>Welcome</h2> 
      <p>Fusce semper id ipsum sed scelerisque. Etiam nec elementum massa. Pellentesque tristique ex ac ipsum hendrerit, eget feugiat ante faucibus.</p>
      <ul>
        <li><a href="#">Recent project #1</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Recent project #2</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Recent project #3</a></li>     
      </ul>
    </section>
    <footer>
      <p>&copy; 2017 My Portfolio</p>
      <p>Follow me on <a href="#">Twitter</a>, <a href="#">Instagram</a> and <a href="#">Dribbble</a></p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

Note the placement of the header start and end tags.

Hope this helps,

Ajay
