Hi Arlene,

It looks like your double quotes are actually special characters within that unordered list. Notice how in your markup they look starkly different from the standard double quotes used in the head, logo, and navigation. Try deleting those special double quotes and just insert standard double quotes from your keyboard. Copying and pasting from certain editors such as Microsoft Word or LibreOffice Writer etc. can cause special double quotes characters to appear, because they use fancier versions of double quotes for text. :)

EDIT: Also, the pictures should have an extension of "jpg" not "jpeg"

     <!-- Special double quotes removed -->
          <li><img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""></li>
          <li><img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt=""></li>
          <li><img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt=""></li>

Ah... cut and paste! That makes sense. Lol.

Thank you Marcus! I've seen these 'fancy' quotes tripping people up in the forum a few times, and I've been racking my brain as to HOW sometimes they're there and sometimes they're not... :)

Exactly! haha I only know this because when I first started out I was trying to use LibreOffice Writer to write the JavaScript and then pasting it into the challenges and getting that error! It was frustrating because I knew the code was correct, but then I looked closely at the double quotes and noticed that they looked really weird haha

you guys are awesome

I did that and it still does not work. I'm still getting the same error. <li>><img src="img/numbers-01.jpeg" alt=""></li> <li>><img src="img/numbers-02.jpeg" alt=""></li> <li>><img src="img/numbers-06.jpeg" alt=""></li>

Can you please post the URL of the challenge you are currently on?

Oh I see the problem. It was the quotes and that you have "jpeg" for an extension instead of "jpg" for each picture. I updated my original answer to reflect this as well. The challenge wants you to put "img/numbers-01.jpg" etc.

Thank you Marcus. That made me chuckle, so easy I couldn't even see it.

Haha :P It's always the little things! But as Elsa would say, "Let it gooo...let it goooooo!" My baby sister has watched that movie a thousand times so that's how I know that! haha Happy Coding, Arlene!
