Help with Images?

Can someone tell me what's wrong with the code below? It would really help if there were clues instead of the program just saying things are wrong. It's a big, discouraging waste of time!!!

    <li><a href=img/numbers-01.jpg></li>
    <li><a href=ing/numbers-02.jpg></li>
    <li><a href=img/numbers-06.jpg></li>

You need to put '''<img src"imagepath"> rather than <a href=""> A href is for hyper links, hyper link reference. Img src is image source.

Hi @Jen, to clear up what @Richard is saying, if you want to insert an img then you'll want to use the image tag:

<li><img src="img/yourimage.jpg" /></li>

If you want, you can also make this image link to something by surrounding it with <a> tags:

   <a href="#">
   <img src="img/yourimage.jpg" />

Edit: Forgot to close the <a> tags

Thanks Nick Nish I am really tired and am trying to help as i go along, this community is great!

Thank you both very much! I knew I was doing something wrong, but couldn't remember what.

The community here is great, didn't expect to get answers so soon! I'm learning more here than the class I paid $3500 for. Wish I knew about Treehouse before I signed up for the class.
